Interaksyon.com reports that the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) chairman Francis Tolentino declared, "It's a go next week for the implementation of the new billboard guidelines and we will strictly enforce the billboard height and size requirements."

The report noted that the billboard campaign has earned support from the Metro Mayors Council. Tolentino said that "the new guidelines will set a uniform standard for billboards and other ads and prevent further cluttering of the metropolis’ skyline." This means that "effective (this month), all existing billboard building permits, business permits and clearances shall be disregarded or canceled, and all billboard sign owners shall be required to apply for clearances or permits anew from their respective local government units."

 

One of guidelines stipulates that "all billboards must have a size of 60 x 40 feet and be at least 100 meters apart, or they will be removed."
