    I'm presuming this signage is associated with Liquorland? More detail is needed so residents/commercial tenants can make an informed decision. e.g. Number & size of sign/s, colours & design; level of illumination/brightness; hours of operation; placement/direction sign/s will be viewed from etc.

    It is hard to find all the details of the signage planned, however looking at existing Liquorland stores (which we presume the signage is for), would be totally unacceptable in this area. This shopping strip is known for it's "village" atmosphere and low key shop fronts. The proposed signage would be totally out of character and would dominate this lovely area which we hope to preserve.

    A Heritage Overlay applies to Surrey Hills Village and rightly so - its unique character deserves protection from the garish red and yellow signage typically associated with LIQUORLAND.

    Unfortunately for local residents, no details have been made publicly available so we can only assume LIQUORLAND are seeking to replicate what they do elsewhere. This includes displaying "in your face" signage and multiple posters offering discounted liquor, targeting our youth (in particular) as they disembark the nearby buses and train station.

    Council needs to thoroughly examine every detail of this application because the interests of residents in maintaining visual amenity and the commercial interests of LIQUORLAND are definitely not aligned.

    At the very least, there should be restrictions on what signage is visible from Croydon road.

    I have just created an objection to the Council using their online form against these signs.

    Delivered to local councillor Phillip Healey. They are yet to respond.
