Fly-posting is the term used for unauthorised display of advertisements on street furniture including benches, post boxes, phone boxes, street lights, traffic signs, bus stops and memorials. Fly-posting is unsightly and is now considered to be a contributing factor to urban decay. It may also cause a visual obstruction to pedestrians and motorists alike.
We take fly-posting seriously and aim to remove it and pass the costs of the removal on to the advertisers. This unlawful advertising is an offence and we'll issue a £75 fixed penalty notice to all offenders.
