Tuesday, December 15, 2009 –  The Development Control Authority (DCA), is concerned that persons have been erecting advertisements which includes signs and billboards, without permission as required by law. 


“These advertisements and billboards are erected at such locations and in  numbers that detract from the natural scenery of certain areas, and in some areas, resembles the onset of urban blight,” Executive Secretary of the DCA, Marion Francis Henry says.


Pursuant to Section 36 (1) of the Physical Planning and Development Act No. 29 of 2001, persons who are desirous of displaying advertisements,  signs, or billboards on any building or land, are required to first obtain written permission from the Development Control Authority.


Consequently, notice is hereby given to all persons who have erected advertisements, signs or billboards, without obtaining permission from the Development Control Authority, are to remove them, no later than 31st of January, 2010.


Failure to comply with this notice will result in necessary action by the Development Control Authority.
