American car diner advert incongruously harmful

An inspector has concluded that the display of a sign which utilised the image of a classic American car at a diner in Essex would undermine the amenity of the area due to its incongruous appearance.

The host property was of little architectural merit set within an extensive area of car parking. But the proposed sign advertising the diner would extend across the whole of the front elevation, the inspector noted, and it would have a haphazard relationship with the host property, with the entrance door, one large window and an existing fascia sign excluded from the design. This awkward relationship coupled to its prominence would undermine the amenity of the area, he decided.
