Fly-posting is illegal and anyone caught in the act can be prosecuted. Any signs, placards, notices, leaflets, banners or similar that can be seen from the highway may constitute as fly-posting.
Organisations or individuals considering putting up any advertising sign or placard should seek both planning consent and the land owners consent before doing so.
For further information see the government’s Guide to Outdoor Advertisements and signs.
