It's the law of the land, Miss M. Which applies to MIA as much as the rest of us.  As someone (forget who it was for the moment.......) wrote elsewhere on this forum: 
Are you a law abiding citizen or are you all for trying to get round authority and bend the rules that most of us have to abide by   :-\

Hey I know it's the law of the land mate  !!  Just wanted to get it in writing so I know the requirements for when I get CAMSFC banner removed from Hibbert Lane.  It's very distracting when you drive by, wouldn't you agree Dave.  Now all I need is a friend to second my complaint to the planning enforcement team.  Lol  :-*

i intend to complain about every single politic poster for the next election.. and i expect my son will want to too  ;D

It might be the law of the land Dave but it had best be consistent!

Miss Marple.. what are those complaints based on?  who complained?  is there a FOI way of getting that info?  ;D
do some thing to deal with those complaints and put another one up in a slightly different place... Its a bureaucratic game using legal routes meant for different situations, but its a game thats very easy to play I expect.

Why don't all the shop owners who feel threatened by a supermarket hire an official site IE an advertising hording to display a no poster.... ;)

You can ask the council on what grounds were the banner removed,if they say it was a distraction well lets have all the for sale signs along that route removed as well....lets get cheeky...... :o

I think it will have been a planning issue.  You need planning consent to put up a big sign or banner.  An estate agent's 'for sale ' sign is small enough not to need planning permission, however.

Two people complained to planning enforcement to have the banner removed.  I think they were two people from the YES to a supermarket who complained but unsure.  I have requested names from SMBC to ensure that it was members of the public who complained and not just the council being awkward.  But i have plans for the banner which will be in more of a prominent position MY GARDEN !  It's going to be lit up with flashing lights !  It will be Marple's answer to Vegas it's a good job both my neighbours are against a supermarket.  Hope it doesn't  interfere with the flight path Lol

I seem to recall that there is a planning law that says any permanent sign must be below a certain height and conform to a maximum size. I think you can have a sign that is taken down and erected on a daily basis.
We all have the right to an personal opinion, whether you agree with it or not!

Whilst I'm sort if on your side re. Supermarket, the is a little bit of pot & kettle here. You are often a minority voice protesting about this and that demanding things done your way - trees, 17 windows etc

True Duke she does... however I'm not aware that Miss Marple has managed to actually convince stockport planning enforcement officers to actually DO what she wants!   Even when she gets one other person to agree with her... and I think that is the point here?
