Planning application at 66 Boardman Road, Kippa-ring QLD 4021
March 11, 2019, 8:16 a.m.
I wish to strongly object to this proposal for two 6m x 3m illuminated billboards on Boardman Road at the fire station. This is a totally unnecessary source of visual and light pollution and driver distraction. I consider that the location is poor because it is in a residential area, and also on a bend on a very busy road that has a change of grade - and emergency vehicle access - near that point. Traffic safety must come first, and distracted drivers cause accidents. This site is a key entrance and exit to Newport and Scarborough (which is no doubt why the DA has selected it). The amenity of this locality is a welcoming gateway to these areas, which is why the original Newport developers planted the avenue of trees here. Newport and Scarborough are free from advertising (apart from temporary advertising of the Stockland Newport developers) at present, and I strongly oppose any proposal to commercialise our residential area with billboards.
