Pavement advertising boards (A-boards) banned from Bradford's streets
The Bradford & District Disabled People’s Forum (BDPF) along with other disability group across the district are delighted that the Bradford Council’s Executive held on Tuesday 7th November 2017, voted to ban pavement advertising boards (A-boards) from the streets of Bradford.
The ban on A-boards will come into force on 1st April 2018, businesses which flout the ban repeatedly will be served with a Community Protection Notice under the Anti-Social Behaviour Act of 2014.
Failing to comply with the Notice may result in a Fixed Penalty Notice of £100 and the confiscation of the A-Boards.
Emmerson Walgrove, Chair of Bradford & District Disabled People’s Forum said “following all the hard work we and other disability group across the Bradford District have put in over the years, it’s a great result. The decision shows that with perseverance, the democratic process can be used to bring about change and improvements for blind, partially sighted people and disabled people”
“Removing A-boards would enable many people to walk along their local streets without fear of colliding with a heavy, painful sign”
