AN em­ployee of a pub that ad­ver­tised its sum­mer party by putting up posters il­le­gally has been fined.

Hilling­don Coun­cil’s Anti-So­cial Behaviour (ASB) team fined an em­ployee of The Swan, in Iver, £200 af­ter posters were found near High Road, Cow­ley, and on the junc­tion of Iver Lane and the High Street, in Cow­ley.

Fly-post­ing is a con­cern for the coun­cil be­cause they are of­ten put up at busy road junc­tions, block­ing the view for driv­ers and caus­ing dis­trac­tions.

They are also an eye­sore and can cre­ate lit­ter.

Coun­cil­lor Dou­glas Mills, cabi­net mem­ber for com­mu­nity, com­merce and re­gen­er­a­tion at Hilling­don Coun­cil, said: “Ad­ver­tis­ing in the bor­ough should be pre­sented neatly and dis­played in ap­pro­pri­ate lo­ca­tions, having gained all nec­es­sary per­mis­sions, in or­der to keep our bor­ough safe and tidy.

“When our ASB team dis­cov­ers posters that have been put up il­le­gally, they can fine those who are re­spon­si­ble.”
