Fly posting is a criminal offence Click to get info
As well as removing the posters, we’ll investigate who put them there, with a view to taking action against them. We'll attempt to take action against the person fly posting, or if this isn't possible, against the organiser of the event advertised.
We can do this by:
- issuing a fixed penalty notice of £80 per incident (this means per poster or sticker, not per event advertised)
- prosecuting – fines are up to £5,000

We will consider giving permission to organisers of local or charity events to put up advertising posters on public property. Please email email@example.com at least four weeks before the event.
We will get back to you within five days and tell you if we have given you permission. If the answer is no, we will explain our reasons.
Fly posting on private premises Click to get info
It’s the owner’s responsibility to remove fly posting on private property. If this isn’t done, we can send a notice instructing the owner to remove this within a certain time period.
If our notice is ignored, then we can remove the fly posters ourselves, and charge the property owner for this work.
