Report fly posting

Fly posting is displaying advertising signs in unauthorised places.  A sign can be a poster, notice, advertisement of any kind.

We can serve a notice that the advertisements must be removed within 48 hours, issue a £75 Fixed Penalty Notice for each sign, or remove them and claim back the costs for doing so. This applies to signage that does not comply with the council's guidelines. We are committed to supporting events signage.

We are responsible for removing fly posting from public buildings and street furniture. We also support West Sussex County Council, which has control over signs and advertisements on the highway.

The removal of fly posting on private buildings is the responsibility of the property owner.
