The planning application is here. I can't view any of the documents though.

I just want to say What?

This just feels like another kick in the teeth to the other schools in the area like the Rock at the Castle outrage. It's not like it's a private institution (that sometimes has this type of advertising).

Docs are now downloadable. Attaching a picture!!!!! I'm sure this will add to the ambience of the listed station and won't be tacky at all...

The banner looks as if it was done by a schoolchild. And why the railroad train in the top left?

Nevermind the train. What about that Crusader? Who the hell thought celebrating the Crusades was a great idea?

I cant believe this is a serious application for so many reasons -

- this is to go on a listed building??
- a lot of the images are either historically or culturally inappropriate
- I am going to presume the work was done by students so wont be too disparaging about the quality of some of the images


The worst thing though is that it "advertises" only one of the schools in Hertford and ignores the others, one of which is actually closer. As a banner at one of the gateways to Hertford why would that be allowed? I know RHS celebrates its 400 years (last year) but it had an awful lot of other stuff going on last year not for celebration, results included. Perhaps that's why the advert is needed?
