Distribution of free printed matter
To clamp down on an increasing number of promoters, an Order has been introduced, designating specific streets in the borough in which the distribution of free printed matter will be prohibited, without the prior written consent of the Council.
Distribution includes giving out, or making available, printed matter to members of the public. This does not include putting it inside a letter box.
The Order does not place controls on distribution for charitable, political, or religious purposes.
