It was good to hear that the problem of flyposting across Neath Port Talbot is being tackled by the council and that they are starting to reap the rewards of their zero tolerance approach.
At a court hearing recently, a company from Cheshire was fined £500 and ordered to pay £250 as a result of the putting a poster up illegally in Neath Town Centre.
The fine will certainly act as a deterrent to anyone who is thinking of doing something similar, and is to be welcomed as part of the “Back to Basics” campaign by the Labour led council to make our communities cleaner and safer.
Watch this space as whilst this was the first case brought by the council, there are rumoured to be quite a few others in the pipeline.
