‘Eyesore’ boards to banned by city council
The City of Lincoln Council plans to ban agents’ boards it parts of the city. It has applied to the Government in Westminster for the ban over concerns that up to a quarter of properties in certain areas are displaying boards.
A recent consultation received 134 responses, of which 85 expressed a wish for a “total ban” on “to let” boards.
Planning manager Kieron Manning said: “It’s shocking to think that some parts of the city have around 25% of the properties covered in ‘to let’ boards, and between the years 2004 and 2016 we have seen the number of complaints grow steadily, so we are aware that there is a problem.
