Estate Agent Fined for fly-posting

The following press notice has been issued by the Council and it will strike a chord with a number of residents across our Association:

An estate agent has been fined by Spelthorne Borough Council for fly-posting.

The Council operates a 'zero-tolerance' policy on fly posting. We have responded to frequent breaches by estate agents who have allowed their contractors to erect for sale, to let, sold boards etc signage on publicly owned/maintained property such as grass verges, road signs and other roadside furniture maintained at public expense.

In order to tackle this problem, our Law Enforcement team have repeatedly written to estate agencies within the Borough highlighting their individual responsibilities to remain within the law, and our team continues to hear concerns from residents on the matter.

After a clear breach of this policy was brought to our attention, the offending sign was removed from the road sign it was attached to and a fixed penalty ticket was issued to a local estate agency, which has been paid by the offending company.

Cllr Richard Barratt, Portfolio Holder for Compliance, Waste and Risk, said: "This Council has demonstrated that it takes a zero-tolerance policy towards fly-posting. We hope that our actions will send a message out to the business community that we will act if they break the law. I ask that residents continue to inform us if there are any breaches of the law so the Council can ensure we have a cleaner, greener Spelthorne for everyone."
