As a nearby resident, I certainly wasn’t consulted about these monstrous erections and if I had been I would have objected most strongly.

I am absolutely horrified by the hoardings, which are directly opposite Barnes Common, an important local nature reserve and green space. The sheer size of the hoardings and the fact that they illuminated means that they are patently obviously inappropriate for the site. If they were next to a motorway, maybe; but not in a leafy London suburb.
