Focus of EIA

Under Section Under Section 43 of the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014, Community Protection Warnings (CPWs) and Community Protection Notices (CPNs) can be issued to an individual aged 16 or over, or a body, if satisfied on reasonable grounds that: a) the conduct of the individual or body is having a detrimental effect, of a persistent or continuing nature, on the quality of life in the locality, and b) the conduct is unreasonable.

 

It is considered that flyposting:

        is having a detrimental effect on the quality of life of those in the locality: this activity is criminal and anti-social and can lead to other anti-social activities such as graffiti

        is a persistent or of a continuing nature: even after posters and stickers are removed, they do reappear meaning council resources are continually used to remove them

        is unreasonable: fly-posting and stickering is unlawful and the council has to use its limited budgets to continually pay for its removal

 

By issuing CPWs and CPNs to the individuals and bodies responsible for the flyposting, the council can seek to improve the cleanliness of the city as this is a much more cost-effective way than issuing FPNs.

Assessment of overall impacts and any further recommendations

No data is held on the individuals that put up fly-posts. Generally, the fly-posts tend to be on behalf of venues and promoters. No data is held on the types of venues and promoters.

 

There are no identified adverse or disproportionate effects on protected groups and all communities should benefit long term from reduced environmental crime as a result of introducing CPWs and CPNs for fly-posting.

 

All groups have a need for a consistent council response to offenders of fly-posting. Some groups may not understand the rules relating to fly-posting, therefore accessible and clear communication and education is an important tool for a reducing offending rates.
