    a little victory 18th Oct 17 at 4:28 PM
    local shop installed anpr cameras on poles to dish tickets out , they didn't get planning permission and they break rules , council has asked them to retro apply for permission , they haven't, enforcement action to follow

    just a small victory, but one all the same

    They have not even bothered to get retrospective planning for the poles and i cant see it happening, i reported this in 2016 originally.

    As for the signs is it worth replying ?

    is this an independent shop, or party of a chain?

    This is the best idea. Ever.


    There's no criminal damage if it's a removable sticker. However, the stickers will soon be removed, and you'd have to stick them on every sign.


    How about getting your local paper interested in Smart's sharp practices and the fact that the council won't do anything. And complain to your local councillor. Keep up the good work!

    I'm encouraged by the council's response that they'll do nothing if it's not causing anyone any bother. I think I'll rely on that to build a new house in my garden without consent, that won't harm anyone!
