Light show at Ilkley Pizza Express ‘is over the top’
8:50am Friday 16th May 2014 in Local news
Plans for new light-up signs outside an Ilkley town centre restaurant have been branded excessive by a councillor.
Councillor Martin Smith (Con, Ilkley) has objected to the move by Pizza Express at Station Plaza, Station Road.
Councillor Smith, a Bradford councillor, says the plans for a “halo” illuminated fascia text and light line, a replacement internally illuminated hanging sign, an illuminated totem sign, a replacement illuminated roundel, four planters, a parasol and two plant pots were “totally inappropriate” for the listed railway building, which dates from 1865.
He asked council officers to present the plans to a planning panel if they were minded to approve them.
