ALFAZ town hall is cracking down on illegal billboards on the Old Altea Road.

“These advertising hoardings have proliferated in recent years, especially in Albir where they have a considerable visual impact,” said Alfaz’s Urban Development councillor, Toni Such.

The town hall is currently notifying the firms responsible for the hoardings, asking for their immediate removal.

“If they ignore this, the administration will intervene and issues fines, both for the firm and the owner of the land,” Such added.

“In this case the town hall will remove the billboards at the expense of the offender.”

Alfaz bylaws set fines ranging from €300 to €3,000 for unauthorised hoardings and signs, the councillor continued.

“Any business that wants to install an advertising hoarding in the municipality should apply for the relevant licence at Alfaz town all,” Such said.

“What’s more, the framework and supports are subject to size limits and are allowed only on permitted sites so that they cause as little visual and environmental impact as possible.”
