CALA Homes indulge in territorial marking

Before CALA Homes build their overbearing blocks - which nobody likes - CALA Homes chop amenity trees in the Conservation Area of Tunbridge Wells. Furthermore CALA Homes now wish to deteriorate the visual amenities of this Conservation Area (in the middle of the town) by erecting out of proportion advertisement signs and poles.
