Say no to a large digital billboard on Wandsworth Road!
We want to be free to travel around Nine Elms without being bombarded by huge digital advertising screens. We don’t want residential Nine Elms to be turned into a new Vauxhall.
Billboard company Clear Channel is proposing to install a new digital advertising screen on 170 Wandsworth Road, replacing an existing poster site with a more intrusive, more energy-draining digital screen with new images displaying up to every 5 seconds.
These huge advertising screens typically promote new cars, fast fashion and fast food and require a huge amount of electricity to operate. They also cause light pollution for pedestrians and residents and are a major safety concern for road users.
Lambeth Council recommends to object by 11th November 2021.
Please sign and share the petition.
Let's have our say and object to this intrusive and unasked for digital billboard.

Re: Planning application 21/03905/ADV | Replacement of existing internally illuminated backlight 48-sheet advertisement with an internally illuminated digital 48-sheet advertisement. | 170 Wandsworth Road London SW8 2LA
We the undersigned would like to live, work and play in Nine Elms without being bombarded by bright new digital advertising selling us new cars, fast fashion or junk food. The proposed new screen would harm the amenity of the area and be a dangerous distraction to motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.
