Flyposting - reporting and removal

The Council is committed to cleaning flyposting from its own property as quickly as possible. Most property in the City is not owned by us so usually we can only try and persuade other people to remove flyposting - we can't force them to do it.

Tell us about the location of any flyposting and we will do our best to get it removed. So that you know what's likely to happen, here is a brief guide:

City Council property
On City Council property, we aim to clean it off within 20 working days.

Other Public Property

On shops, offices, industrial and transport company property, we will contact the owner asking them to take action.

Privately Owned Houses
If it's on your property, you have a responsibility to remove the flyposting. We can give you advice on who to contact to have it removed. Costs are quite high, but your house insurance may well cover this cost. We may be able to help you out with a free service, but there is a waiting list.
