Lagoa wants to remove around half of its billboards

Lagoa council has announced plans to remove half of the municipality’s billboards by the end of 2017. It explained that 240 billboards is “too high a number for a small borough like Lagoa”. They not only have a negative effect on the natural landscape, but are also a danger to drivers and pedestrians as they reduce visibility, it said. Plans are to remove 25% of the billboards this year and another 25% in 2017.
