Wicklow and Arklow Municipal Districts have voted to be poster free areas when it comes to Local and European elections due this year.
At their respective monthly meetings, the Elected Members of Wicklow Municipal District and Arklow Municipal District passed the following motions:
Passed Notices of Motions as follows:
“That Wicklow Municipal District seeks to have the Main Streets of Wicklow Town and the Main Streets of the villages within the Wicklow Municipal District to be designated as election poster free areas.”
“That Arklow Municipal District ban all posters on poles on the old N11 running from Hills garage to Knockmore Roundabout.”
Councillors felt that this would support and show solidarity with the Community Groups and the Tidy Towns committees who work so hard to promote their areas in the two Districts.
They are appealing to the goodwill of the candidates and their agents to respect the wishes of their constituents and to adhere to this request.
Wicklow Municipal District and Arklow Municipal District are calling on all candidates to consider this sensible proposal well ahead of the forthcoming election campaigns and are hopeful that we can progress on this basis.
