Refrain from responding to flyers
Wed, May 19, 2010

RESIDENTS are urged to refrain from responding to flyers distributed to HDB households.

Ms Lee Bee Wah, the Member of Parliament for Ang Mo Kio GRC, expressed concern on the increasing nuisance of flyers being pasted at HDB flats by asking the Minister for National Development, Mr Mah Bow Tan, on whether the Ministry will direct vendors to look at other means of advertising.

Mr Mah replied in writing that that Town Councils and HDB cannot stop businesses from distributing flyers to households and residents should refrain from responding to these flyers to discourage such marketing practices.

He also said that it is an offence to paste flyers on common property without prior written approval from the Town Council and carries a maximum penalty of $5,000.
