We will boycott the goods and services advertised on the screens at Rosslyn Park
We, the undersigned, hold companies who advertise on the JC Decaux screens at Rosslyn Park responsible for spoiling our local environment. Signatories to this petition agree to actively boycott the goods and services of any company that advertises on these screens. Through our previous petition we have established that there is considerable public opposition to the installation of three giant digital advertising screens at Rosslyn Park on the Upper Richmond Road. Wandsworth Council should never have given consent for these screens and failed to carry out proper public consultation during the application process. Furthermore, the Council and the screen operator, J C Decaux, appear to be intent on ignoring this public opposition and other issues such as the ecological damage that has been caused by the installation. Despite their best efforts to ignore us, we do have power in this relationship and it is important that we demonstrate it; or screens like these will be appearing all over our neighbourhoods. There is such a thing as bad publicity. If advertisers believe that their marketing budgets are being spent on spoiling, rather than enhancing, their brands they will soon stop. No advertisers = no screens.
We need proper public consultation over Rosslyn Park's advertising screens
Please sign this petition to show that you object to the advertising screens on Rosslyn Park's boundary with the Upper Richmond Road. We represent residents of Putney and surrounding areas who object strongly to the giant advertising screens which appeared in November 2015. We believe that the installation of the screens opposite Barnes Common is completely out of keeping with the surroundings and creates an extremely regrettable precedent. Further we believe that Wandsworth Council acted outside their remit by allowing commercial arguments to be used in Planning. Our objective is the removal of the screens. Our tactics are: To petition for a review of the original Planning process To shame advertisers and encourage them to boycott the screens To draw RPFC’s members’ attention to the strength of local opposition To ensure that full public consultation is embedded in any future Planning review Rosslyn Park and Wandsworth Council state that the screens had overwhelming public support during Planning. We contend that there was inadequate consultation with the public given the impact of the installations, and that the apparent support came from Rosslyn Park members who stand to gain from the revenue generated by the advertising. By signing this petition you are showing Wandsworth Council and Rosslyn Park that there is significant opposition to these screens and that you wish for them to be removed as soon as possible.
