The government is planning to introduce several regulations to curb visual pollution.
‘Ravaya’ newspaper has quoted Central Environment Authority chairman Charitha Herath as having said the National Environment Act had provisions to introduce such laws.
According to him, actions that lead to unattractive visual elements such as erecting communication towers on hilltops and locating notice board at public locations will be banned.
