PORTSMOUTH City Council hopes to install adverts on pay-and-display parking meters in an area of conservation.

It has applied to place non-illuminated vinyl signs on 18 pay and display parking meters on Clarence Esplanade.

Portsmouth Society has objected to the plan, and a decision will be taken tomorrow.
