Can you put up event advertising on private residential property?

Hello,

I think I am officially getting old ...

I live in the Bern Old Town on a very quiet and elegant street. No Christmas lights this year due to the regulations, but that's OK.

We have a neighbor directly across the street that has put up a giant party advertisement sign covering his entire front door for a "Bar Street Festival". It is very trashy and very unpleasant to look at ... is this allowed? I wanted to know before I escalated it. It is right where my reading chair in the library is ... I can't really ignore it.

Here is the festival in case you wanted to see what I mean by "trashy" ... I really do not want to look at this until mid February. And I guess the next trashy party they work at will also be advertised there.

Thanks

It varies depending on where you are so you would need to check the regulations for your area.

I don't know, but I'd think if it was not allowed someone official would have seen or been notified of it and it would have been taken down by now.

A personal opinion as I don't know the rules, but I think if it's on his own front door, and not flashing lights or making sounds, then I think he's within his rights.

It was just put up overnight ... since a large majority of the people living on this street are elderly, I'm sure it will be escalated before even I can make a fuss. I just didn't want to ring up the cops uninformed.

That's terrible. I hope it goes away.

Re: Can you put up event advertising on private residential property?

I'd think two factors might be for how long and how frequently such ad(s) is/are displayed. If the festival is soon after the ad was put up, one could safely assume that it will be taken down once the festival is over, and within a short time, the matter would be done, and that'd be that. In such a case, the authorities might prefer to turn a blind eye. If, on the other hand, this is the start of a string of ads on his door, that'd probably add more weight to any potential complaint.

Re: Can you put up event advertising on private residential property?

Advertising rules are, of course, strictly regulated in CH. According to the following link, no - they cannot just stick-up a massive poster:

https://www.bern.ch/themen/planen-un...en-und-plakate

Building permits are required for:

Third-party advertising and illuminated advertising in general (incl. digital screens)

Signs on historical monuments and their surroundings or in protected areas

Own advertising and company addresses that do not fall under Art. 6a BewD (permit-free)

Temporary advertising, such as rental and sales advertising, building advertising, advertising for events, elections and votes, which do not fall under Art. 6a OFL (permit-free)

I am aware and very unlike me - but as someone who has been stuck at home after knee surgery and now Covid, I really don't want to look at this crap all day. It also sets a precedent if one allows it ...

Thanks a lot for the link
