The Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) has issued a two week deadline for those who have erected illegal hoardings throughout Colombo city to remove them
, CMC Special Commissioner Omar Kamil told Daily Mirror online. 

Kamil added that the removing of illegal hoardings was in line with moves to make Colombo city a more clean and picturesque city in the island and that most of these hoardings did not have the approval of the CMC or were erected in places that hoardings should not be put up in.


He further added that all hoardings facing public roads that are erected on private or public property, without the approval of the CMC had to be removed.


Last year the Supreme Court had directed the CMC to remove all illegal hoardings and to regularize the manner in which they were put up, he said. (Daily Mirror online)

    first of all our beloved ministers smile/salute hoardings should be removed. These hoardings keep the city more cleaned.

    Bala Sunday, 29 August 2010 07:35 AM

    Only when it suits those at the top or for the opposition - and that also for anti govt ones.only.

    Thomas Saturday, 28 August 2010 02:57 PM

    WHY 2 weeks time, must be removed within 24 hrs if they are ILLIGAL

    Dee Saturday, 28 August 2010 03:11 PM

    we know who will be allowed to market hoardings.

    This is a very welcome and perhaps a long-overdue move by the Colombo Municipality. It should be extended to areas beyond Colombo gradually and possibly countrywide thereafter. The housing/building regulations should be enforced strictly. It will be in the interests of all citizens. I do not agree with comment by Thomas above of 28 August 2010 - sufficient time must be given for correction i.e. up to 3-6 months if necessary.

    Citizen Silva Saturday, 28 August 2010 03:19 PM

    There is a law that does not allow hoardings. What the warning and to whom!!!

    Bala Saturday, 28 August 2010 03:51 PM

    What about political cutouts. They are worse. See near Rupavahini.

    dxb Saturday, 28 August 2010 04:02 PM

    does this include MR also

    Deepal Saturday, 28 August 2010 04:09 PM

    It is not rocket science.
    This looks like a money matter. To get CMC approval for a hoarding, one has to make a payment to them. No revenue to CMC means hoardings are illegal.

    Tusith Saturday, 28 August 2010 04:34 PM

    CMC can impose a registration fee for all the events/transections done in the town , to tax and to have a track of all records.

    So many rules and orders are prevailing in SL , but how many of the implemented?

    Wijendra Dehipawala Saturday, 28 August 2010 05:16 PM

    Most of these people are very poor. They came to Colombo to earn some living. We need to give them some time to take their valuables( furniture, few roof sheets etc)

    pj Saturday, 28 August 2010 07:16 PM

    Election Commissioner is being replaced by the CMC.!!

    bigsam Saturday, 28 August 2010 07:57 PM

    Or else what?

    Butta Saturday, 28 August 2010 09:53 PM

    Not to soon, they may reverese the directive, just like the "no-visa on arrival" idea.

    NIHAL PERERA Saturday, 28 August 2010 10:51 PM

    LET US SEE WHAT THESE GUYS AT CMC WILL DO AFTER 2 WEEKS.
    SWEET FA.
    THESE BLOATED POLITICIANS NEED THESE HOARDINGS TO KEEP UP THEIR EGOS
