The application, submitted by Project Digital UK, states it is for a "proposed erection of LED Advertising Board" which is "5m wide x 3m high with maximum luminous intensity of 5000 cd/sqm".

It adds that images to be displayed on the hoarding "are to be static (no moving images) and "each display to last a minimum of 10 seconds".

The application is up on standard consultation to the public until Thursday, December 7, with a decision expected by the council by January 9, 2024.
