More than a dozen advertising screens could be coming to Reading’s town centre.
Outdoor advertising company JCDecaux is seeking advertisement consent for 15 digital screens in Broad Street, Station Road and Queen Victoria Street.
Five of the double-sided LED digital screens would replace signs at bus shelters, with the other 10 free standing outside shops.
Reading Borough Council (RBC) officers have recommended refusal of four of the screens because they are positioned in areas "relatively poorly covered" by CCTV. The council said the structure would further obscure pedestrians behind the screen and therefore pose a security risk.
