Council reaction to ‘pic of the day’ images.

Just recently l showed you two pictures by David Greenwood who wrote:

Two examples of who is looking after our city, taken about 9.30 this morning.

The first one is the “ poster” put up all around the city advertising the Charlie and Stan show at the Theatre Royal which finished on 24th July. 

There are at least 5 of these all around Laura Place alone! 

Have spoken the the Theatre Royal and asked when they would be removed. They commented that they did not put them up!  So precisely who is taking them down ? 

Not something the council tax payers of Bath should have to pay for. Just more clutter left around the city.

The second photo was taken at the end of Grove Street and was probably left out by the little cafe there.”

I approached the Theatre Royal to see if they want to comment further but received no reply.

Meanwhile a spokesperson for B&NES told me:

“We continue to work with residents and businesses in the city centre to help them present their waste appropriately.

We would ask everyone to please play their part in keeping the city clean by ensuring waste is securely contained, using reusable rubbish bags or wheeled bins where provided, and only put it out for collection on the correct day and time.

We are able to take enforcement action if waste is persistently presented incorrectly. Any issues can be reported to us at 

“We are able to remove posters that do not have planning consent and flyposting concerns can be reported to our planning enforcement team by calling 01225 394041.” 


  1. It’s just as well clutter such as this is kept away from the World Heritage judges, if not the people who flock to Bath because of its World Heritage status!

  2. If it was left outside my house after the relevant date, I would simply remove it, do a bit of weeding and litter picking in the street at the same time, as well as manning the Community Speedwatch point and asking people to switch off their engines whilst parked with motors running.So that’s my time sorted then !
