Ultimatum for removal of illegal hoardings

Staff Reporter

TIRUVALLUR: The district administration has fixed July 23 as the last date for removal of illegal hoardings erected in urban and semi-urban areas in Tiruvallur district.

Enquiries reveal that Collector Ranvir Prasad made an announcement on Friday that the directive was issued following a Madras High Court direction in a case concerning illegal hoardings in urban and semi-urban areas. A monitoring committee, headed by the Collector, and comprising the Superintendent of Police, and top officials from the Revenue Department and civic bodies as members, has been formed.

Advertisers, who have put up hoarding without valid permission at Tiruvottiyur, Koyambedu, Mugappair, Ambattur, Avadi, Tiruvallur, Poonamallee, Porur and other places, were directed to remove them on their own before the deadline or else the civic officials concerned would remove them and the expenditure would be collected from the advertisers.

In order to streamline the erection of hoardings, the committee has also prescribed the size of hoardings, based on the width of the carriageway on which such hoardings were to come up. While the hoarding size had been restricted to 24 x 12 feet for carriageways having more than 100 feet as road width, it has been fixed at 15 x 10 feet for roads having a width of more than 50 feet but less than 100 feet.

For other roads the hoarding size has been fixed at 12 x 6 feet.
