Signboard

The BD is expediting and strengthening enforcement actions against mega signboards which are in serious breach of the law

The BD has been actively applying to the Court for priority demolition orders under section 24B of the Buildings Ordinance in recent months and then engaged its contractor to remove as soon as possible those mega signboards that are in serious breach of the law and pose high public risk to safeguard public safety. The removal costs and surcharges will be recovered from the signboard owners. The cases with completed removal works are below.
