P-05-893 Ban the use of A boards in Wales


This petition was submitted by Angharad Paget-Jones having collected a total of 80 signatures.


Text of Petition

A petition to ban the use of A board advertising in Wales. A boards not only clutter our pavements but pose a huge risk to disabled people as getting past them in a wheelchair or if you're visually impaired often means you're forced onto the road to by-pass them.


This is especially an issue on shared spaces such as city centres as well as coastal towns where the pavements are narrower.
