Flyposting is illegal, spoils both public and private property and can be very costly to remove. Flyposting is the unauthorised placing of advertising - usually posters or stickers.
We are responsible for reducing and controlling flyposting in the city through education and enforcement. We remove flyposters from public buildings, street furniture and monuments.
Other items such as telephone boxes, bus shelters and electricity boxes are the responsibility of the company that has placed them there.
Flyposting is an illegal anti-social activity that creates a bad impression of an area and contributes to people's fear of crime.
We are constantly seeking to reduce crime, the fear of crime and improve the environment in which Coventry people live. Flyposting affects this work and the local "street scene" and helps give the impression of urban decay - it is also illegal.
Flyposting is a criminal offence. If you are caught flyposting we, or the police, can issue a Fixed Penalty Notice of £80 for each individual offence.
