Report a fly posting issue

Fly posting is the displaying of adverts on bins, posts or walls without permission.

Permission is required to display an advert on highway-controlled land or structures. All enquiries should be made to our Highways department.

Adverts on private land or buildings may need planning permission. Enquiries should be made to our Planning department.

Before you start

To report fly posting online you will need:

  • the location of the fly posting

  • any extra information such as a photo (if it is safe to do so).
