Fly-posting is the unauthorised placing of literature and posters in public places.
The display of such unauthorised advertisements is a criminal offence, for which the District Council can consider a prosecution in the Magistrates Court.
These unauthorised advertisements also have a harmful visual impact, causing areas to appear untidy and generating litter.
Unauthorised advertisements on Cambridgeshire County Council land or structures (e.g. within the highway verge, attached to traffic lights etc) are the responsibility of the County Council.
Reports regarding fly posters or other advertisements that are not on County Council land or structures should be directed to the Council's Enforcement Team
