Government could set minimum distance between advertising boards outside cities at 100 meters
The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine might tighten rules for placing outdoor advertising outside settlements, among which is that the distance between advertising structures should exceed 100 meters.
This is fixed in a posting on the Web site of the State Committee of Ukraine for Regulatory Policy and Entrepreneurship, with reference to a draft cabinet resolution on approving the regulations for placing outdoor advertising outside settlements.
"The distance between advertising structures has been clearly defined for the first time. They can be located at a minimum distance of 100 meters from each other. This will allow honest work. If the owner violates the rules for placing his billboards, he will have either to move it as required by the law or remove it. If the owner does not do this, the regional administration will dismantle the structures," the statement reads.
In addition, permits for placing outdoor advertising outside settlements will be issued with the signature of the regional state administration head and with the concurrence of Ukravtodor and the State Road Traffic Inspectorate, while inside settlements permits will be issued by collective bodies, which will preclude the chance corruption.
"The rules of placing outdoor advertising outside settlements have no priority, i.e. tenants do not need to get a preliminary permits to secure their place for the time of the formalizing of documents," the authority said.
