What are flyposters?

Flyposters are posters, banners, signs etc. put up without permission or in non-authorised locations. They range from posters advertising pop concerts to advertisements for bargain furniture to home-made banners celebrating birthdays or wedding anniversaries.

Flyposting is an illegal, unsightly and anti-social activity that creates a negative impression of an area. Flyposting can also be a dangerous activity as roadside banners and unauthorised signs may cause a distraction to motorists.

What does the Council do about flyposters?

We aim to remove any flyposter within three days of it being reported to us. To ensure speedy removal of flyposters, we operate three rapid response teams. These units also remove graffiti and chewing gum.

Wherever possible we will look to prosecute people who put up flyposters.
