Fly Posting and Graffiti

Fly posting is the illegal unauthorised placing of signs and posters. Fly posters usually advertise or promote events and are placed without permission of the owner of the property and can take the form of stickers, signs or posters.

Graffiti is classed as anything which is written, scratched, painted or sprayed on the surface of any property. It ranges from the simple act of tagging a location with initials through to elaborate paintings.

Graffiti is a criminal offence which is investigated by the police and the local authority. Anyone who is found to be responsible for acts of graffiti can be issued with a fixed penalty notice. Offenders also face arrest by the police and could face very large fines or imprisonment if the matter is dealt with in court.

If you see any one doing an act of graffiti you should immediately report the matter to the police using the non emergency number 111. If you have any information regarding offenders, you should report it to the police or the council. All information will be treated in strictest confidence.
