I expect the local council will be removing hundreds of illegal signs from around Rhondda Cynon Taf all advertising small business and collecting £75 from each business for fly-posting advertising their company, there are lots doted on fences walls etc.
Or are they just picking on one individual anyone know?
Kelly Reardon of Wash n Go car wash and valet service has been fined £75 by Rhondda Cynon Taf Council after displaying a home made sign to advertise his business – a fine he says he is determined not to pay.
Any form of fly-posting (that is, displaying an advertisement without consent) is an offence which is immediately open to prosecution, or to the removal or obliteration of any fly-posting material if the district council or London borough council decide to take remedial action against fly-posting in their area. In the case of a placard or poster, if the material identifies the advertiser displaying it, the Council must give two days’ written notice of the intention to remove or obliterate it. This advance notice gives the advertiser the opportunity to contest the Council’s proposed actions, but if the advertiser is not identified a placard or poster may be immediately removed or obliterated.
Then there’s all the other business in RCT that flout planning law garages that sell vehicles on the highway and grass verges but RCT turn a blind eye to that.
Just pick on the little man and the home made sign and let the bigger companies do as they like typical.
