Fly posting is when people place signs, posters, adverts or stickers without permission. You can be fined up to £2,500 for flyposting.

In a public place

If you see flyposting, unauthorised adverts, posters, leaflets or banners in a public place or on a public building, let us know. We aim to remove flyposting within 14 working days. In some areas, it’s the parish or town council who deal with flyposting and you may need to report it to them directly.

On private land or property

If the flyposting is on private land or property such as telephone boxes or bus shelters, please don’t report this to us as there’s nothing we can do – report it to the owner.

Reporting flyposting

You’ll need to tell us:

  • How big the flyposting is and how many there are
  • What it’s advertising
  • If there’s a name or contact details on the flyposting
  • Where it is, in as much detail as possible
  • If it’s obscene, offensive or contains nudity
