In order to erect an advertising board structure in the Republic of Cyprus, one needs to obtain authorisation for the erection of such a structure from the local Municipal or Community Council, within the boundaries of which the activity will take place.
According to 'The Road Safety Law (L. 174/1986)', the term “advertising board structure” relates to any form of billboard or structure, firmly placed on the ground or trailed or self-propelled, on which any type of advertisement, advert or information is incorporated, affixed, shown, positioned or adjusted.
