Hope you can assist. Prince Barbers has an illegal advertising board on the dual carriageway. This needs to be removed.
I have read the rules and regulations on the council website and it states:
'Please tell us about any form of obstruction on the roads or pavement. These may include such things as advertising boards ('A-boards') on the pavement [...]
It is an offence to obstruct the free passage of the highway. Obstructions are objects which have been placed on a road/ street or which overhang it without permission.
Obstruction of the Public Highway, by goods/advertising boards placed on footways outside or near trade/shop premises can cause problems for pedestrians, especially for prams and people in wheelchairs, but also can be a source of danger for partially-sighted and blind people.
The placing of such goods/advertising boards on the Public Highway constitutes offences under both the Highways Act 1980 and also Section 28 of the Town Police Clauses Act 1847.'
A more serious discussion need to take place with the owners of the pub/car wash. They obviously have complete disregard for the law and your inspector's instructions to remove the huge A-frame advertising hoarding. Many thanks for your help and support.
