Modern Art of Vandalism?

This petition had 182 supporters


After having the side of our Fish and Chip shop vandalised and tagged for the second time, we decided to take a more creative approach. So came along the unique idea of 21st century art on the back of the building; in the form of Boris the fish and the name of the business also. Prior having the art work done, we received lots of positive feedback from customer and passers by, along with other local businesses. However, a call from Kirklees Council dampened our spirits when they informed us we needed planning permission and the art work must be removed within 14 days due to being classed as an advertisement. If this isn't done, we may face prosecution. Please help us save Boris and support 21st century art.

From this we hoped to show young people that they can create real art through graffiti rather than just vandalising property. Not only this, we also hoped it would bring something a little quirky to the village of Slaithwaite.
