Flyposting is a criminal offence under the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 and the Criminal Damage Act 1971. Putting adverts on highway property without the highway authority's permission is an offence under the Highways Act 1980.

You can be fined up to £2,500 for each illegal advert or more for criminal damage.

We'll prosecute people caught flyposting and may issue a fixed penalty notice of £500 if you put up an illegal advert.

We may take legal action against the beneficiaries of flyposting such as the event organisers and licenced premises hosting an event.
