    I don't believe this billboard is in keeping with the local area. Boardman Road is essentially local traffic, and besides the Fire Station it is mainly residential. I believe this sign would be to bright at night and be major distraction at night because of the lighting. I believe this sign really would be better suited on Klinger Road near the PCYC and Dolphins Centre.

    There is already a problem with the volume of traffic down this road with the new Stockland development and its lack of infrastructure in and out of this area. The planned signage is in an area where the road converes from two to one lane, we do not need another distraction on an already hazardous area. I would vote no to this signage.

    I wish to strongly object to this proposal for two 6m x 3m illuminated billboards on Boardman Road at the fire station. This is a totally unnecessary source of visual and light pollution and driver distraction. I consider that the location is poor because it is in a residential area, and also on a bend on a very busy road that has a change of grade - and emergency vehicle access - near that point. Traffic safety must come first, and distracted drivers cause accidents. This site is a key entrance and exit to Newport and Scarborough (which is no doubt why the DA has selected it). The amenity of this locality is a welcoming gateway to these areas, which is why the original Newport developers planted the avenue of trees here. Newport and Scarborough are free from advertising (apart from temporary advertising of the Stockland Newport developers) at present, and I strongly oppose any proposal to commercialise our residential area with billboards.

    Councillr Houghton,
    I firmly disagree with the proposed sign outsde the fire station on Boardman Rd, its physical size, and what is proposed will cause distraction and reduce visual amenity of what is a residential area, with a very pretty landscaped tree lined roadway.
    The narrowing of the road Northbound, from two lanes, into one lane, gives drivers enough to focus on, and a large sign, such as this, will be a distraction.
    Further, once one is allowed, in a residential area, then we open the gates for further visual signs such as ths, amongst ourstreets.
    Thank you,
    J Lea

    As a long term resident of Newport, i have experienced the increase of traffic in the Newport area since Stocklands development has taken place. this is only going to get worse once residents move in. The need for a billboard in this position will add distraction to the already over congested road. I dont believe it is in the best interests of the public to position such billboard in this location. It could also be a nuisance to the surrounding neighboring houses, visual impact and if it is illuminated, then the 24/7 lights will also impede on neighboring privacy and their environment.

    I am very dismayed to read of the application to put a very large and intrusive illuminated advertising billboard on Boardman Road.
    The beautiful avenue of trees lining this "entry way" into Newport has really come into it's own in the last few years. It is an asset to our suburb and a valuable green space.
    To have it violated by a garish lit billboard - positioned to best intrude on the focus and concentration of the drivers on the increasingly congested Boardman Road will not only be a aesthetic insult, but a safety hazard as well. It will be a source of light pollution, in an area frequented by nocturnal native animals. This is essentially a residential area and an ugly commercial sign is not needed or wanted here.

    I would like to state I strongly object to an illuminated sign being erected in the proposed location. Firstly, I can see no justification for the sign being only 50mm from the road frontage instead of 1m. Secondly, the area is predominantly residential and would be a considerable source of light pollution and would distract from the general amenity of the area. Thirdly, the sign would be a further distraction for drivers when there is already problems with traffic merging into one lane heading towards the Griffith Road Roundabout. Fourthly, the location of the sign would be far better suited to Klingner Road near the PCYC and Dolphins Centre.

    The purpose of these billboards is to get people’s attention to present the message displayed. Even if these messages are to spruik good messages of what’s happening in this state or community, or if they are advertising a business, their purpose is to get people’s attention. To distract them enough to pass on that message. It is stupidity to try and get the drivers’ attention off this section of road, especially where the road narrows, the road bends and at night the surroundings are darker and animals run out on the street. Not to mention that it is a beautiful bit of landscaping leading into a wonderful suburb to live. Would this sign also detract from the emergency lights at the fire station. Would the lit signs be in line of sight of the flashing lights indicating a firetruck is exiting the station? This sign is not necessary, nor needed.

    I wish to record my objection to the construction and placement of a billboard as proposed on Boardman Road on or adjacent to the Fire & Rescue Station.

    Such a decision may cause an accident in the future when an emergency arises which requires the prompt action of the fire services, as there will be a conflict of attention between the billboard and the strobe lighting etc of an emergency vehicle. It would appear irresponsible to me to place a distraction adjacent to an emergency service.

    When an emergency arises, you want as little distraction as possible to impede the progress of a vehicle leaving the site. This need is in direct competition with the placing of a billboard in a position to maximise its visibility and effectiveness.

    If you move the billboard further down Boardman Road, you will be making what is now a visually appealing grove of trees, into an eyesore.

    Surely the very fact that Klingner (now two lanes each way) was upgraded to increase road traffic and make Boardman (reducing to a single lane where the billboard is proposed), therefore a lower priority road would, suggest that Klingner is a better site for such a billboard.

  11. Chay Carr commented

    I strongly object to this proposal.

    It would be an absolute eyesore for the area and does not fit in with the landacape of Newport at all.
    It would cause further distraction for drivers in what is already a congested, 2 lanes going into 1 problem.
    When emergency services are exiting their station, motor vehicle drivers would be distracted by the billboard , and this will cause further and unnecessary issues for the emergency services.

  12. Samantha Lister commented

    I strongly object to this proposal. We live on Boardman Road and will be directly affected . Speeding vehicles are a major problem especially at night. Personally, we have experienced a car travelling at excessive speeds, crash into the back of our car while we were indicating to turn into our driveway.
    There are two lanes merging into one and on opposite side one lane merging into two.There is a bus stop on both sides where school children hop on and off. Throw into the mix emergency vehicles entering and exiting. Throw into the mix speeding vehicles. Throw into the mix a 6m x 3m 2 sided illuminated sign visible from both sides of the road. This sign has one purpose, for people driving along Boardman road to look up and read that sign. This sign is clearly going to be a major distraction and an accident waiting to happen.
    This billboard will also be affecting how we use our home. Any windows on the front of our house is facing this billboard.Will we be able to open our windows and pull back the curtains? Will we be able to sleep at night with the lights from the sign reflecting into our rooms. The general functionality of living in our home won't exist. This will adversely affect how we live in our own home.
    This proposal doesn't affect the people making these decisions but it will affect the residents who live here every single day.

  13. Susanne Burton wrote to local councillor Allan Sutherland

    I strongly object to the sign going up on Boardman Road. I feel that this request to put up a sign is due to expected increased flow in traffic expected if the proposed development goes ahead at Newport Marina.
