Fly-posting, the illegal fixing of signs, posters or stickers in public areas, is a nuisance and creates potential danger.
Fly-posting is the illegal fixing or pasting of non-approved signs, posters or stickers to walls, road signs, lamp posts, railings or other areas - usually for commercial interests.
Not only is this illegal but it creates a distraction and potential danger to road users as well as making an area look bad.
If you notice fly-posting in your area you should make a report to the district or borough council.
It will be useful to us or the district or borough council if you could describe:
We will deal with fly-posting on or along a road that is causing a nuisance or danger to road users. Fly-posting on private property is dealt with by the district or borough council for that area.
The priority and timescale for removal will depend upon the location of the fly-posting and level of nuisance caused. This priority will be determined after inspection by council officers.
