Council takes on the Flyers

Rushmoor Council is taking action to stop leaflets and flyers adding to the litter in Aldershot, Farnborough and North Camp.

The Council's Cabinet has agreed to use new powers to designate the shopping centres and car parks as places where leaflets and flyers can only be distributed with consent from the Council. This includes leaflets left under car windscreens.

Once the powers come into effect, anyone caught distributing leaflets without consent will receive a fixed penalty notice. The only exceptions will be leaflets from charities, religious groups and political parties.
Cllr Clifford Comment: This is great news. I may now be able to get my political flyers sponsored by a local take away!!!
