Defra consultation on leafleting - please respond!

Manifesto Club

May 13, 2014 — Good news - Defra has responded to this campaign to change the restrictions on leafleting for small groups; it has launched a consultation, and will produce new guidance for local authorities. Defra says: 'We value the contribution made to communities by small scale live entertainment and events, and do not want people to be put off organising them because of unnecessary bureaucracy'. Please do respond to the consultation! Include any pertinent examples of the effect leafleting licences can have on small groups. https://consult.defra.gov.uk/communications/leafleting-restrictions-and-litter-call-for-evide
