The City Council of La Oliva in Fuerteventura announced this week that it has begun to draft an ordinance to control and regulate the installation of large-format advertising structures.
Most of these billboards are located at the entrances and exits of the local towns, on facades or next to roads. The Council reports that the number of these has increased massively and that this is due to the lack of specific regulations.
Isai Blanco, Mayor of La Oliva, said “We are carrying out these procedures to move the ordinance forward and to avoid more posters every day that give a bad image for residents and tourists. The new regulations will identify where they can be placed, what size they should be and what kind of posters can be placed.”
