Application for lamp post banners submitted again
Banners have already gone up in Windsor

Controversial plans to plaster advertising banners on lamp posts in Windsor have been submitted again.

Bay Media has applied to the Royal Borough to temporarily site 58 banners on the A355, A332, and in Maidenhead Road, Datchet Road and Thames Avenue.

The advertising firm wants permission to hang them on columns to advertise coverage of summer events at Royal Windsor Racecourse.

The application is its third banner proposal in Windsor in just over 12 months after it pulled the plug in November to site 100 and in December to put up 91.

John Holdstock, chairman of West Windsor Residents Association, said: "They cheapen the town and make it look like the golden mile and glitter of Blackpool - they are not for Windsor."

The lamp post banner specialist also submitted a retrospective planning application last week to hang 20 banners, after advertising had already been put up in Thames Avenue, River Street, Goswell Road, Sheet Street and Victoria Street to promote the Royal Windsor Horse Show.
