Noa Noa

Noa Noa clothes shop in Blackheath
Noa Noa (new clothes shop) were refused planning permission for extra illuminated signs outside the shop:

The proposed signage, by reason of its design and illumination, would fail to relate to the design and detailing of the shopfront and the character and appearance of the building,and would detract from the special character of this part of the Blackheath Conservation Area and would fail to comply with Policies URB 9 Signs and Hoardings and URB 16 New Development, Changes of Use and Alterations to Buildings in Conservation Areas within the adopted Unitary Development Plan (July 2004).

This can only be a good thing… First come the glaring signs, then the shutters, then the billboards.  We’re lucky Blackheath is kept looking so nice – in no small part by the Blackheath Society campaigning against various planning proposals.

I wish planningalerts.com worked better – the first I heard of this proposal was when I saw the plasticky sign pinned to the nearest lamp-post.
