Brighton Council introduces new measures against flyposting

From today (1 February 2023), new enforcement measures will be introduced across Brighton & Hove to tackle flyposting and stickering.

Community Protection Warnings (CPWs) and Community Protection Notices (CPNs) will be issued to offenders to in an attempt to reduce the amount of flyposting and stickering.

These new measures will see CPWs issued to individuals, promoters, businesses or organisations suspected of causing the problem. The CPW “will ask them to take reasonable steps to ensure it doesn’t happen again.”

If the behaviour persists, a CPN may be served when the recipient of a CPW fails to comply to the request of the CPW.

By issuing CPWs and CPNs to the individuals and bodies responsible for the flyposting, BHCC hope to improve “the look and feel of the city.” Flyposting is putting up advertisements, posters, banners or stickers on properties, lampposts, telephone boxes or other structures on the streets, without consent and is illegal.

The new measures is intended to allow Brighton and Hove Council to tackle individuals, promoters, businesses or organisations responsible for illegal flyposting, with a key focus on those who use it for advertising and commercial gain.

Councillor Elaine Hills, Co-chair of the Environment, Transport & Sustainability Committee, said: “Flyposting spoils the look and feel of our city. It is difficult and costly to remove flyposters and stickers, and they often cause damage to property and other structures on our streets.

“We’re introducing CPWs and CPNs to tackle flyposting more effectively. It means that we can target the clubs, promoters and advertisers who cause most of our flyposting issues and put responsibility back on the offender to remove the flypost.

“Our priority is to make sure that Brighton & Hove remains a wonderful place to live, work and visit and the new measures will hopefully deter flyposters and keep our streets looking clean and tidy.”
