How it works
A person on the street needs to act as coordinator by distributing information and obtaining agreement in the form of signatures of the residents in the street. A warden or a representative from an appropriate organisation may also act as a coordinator, for example from Neighbourhood Watch, or the local police.
Information and the related paperwork can be provided and tailored to fit the needs of each individual zone.
When we have all the signatures from the residents and a request form from the coordinator outlining details of the area and the reason for establishing a No Cold Calling Zone, the area can be designated as a No Cold Calling Zone. To help to identify this designation residents will be provided with door stickers, making cold callers aware that they are not welcome in the area.
Street signs may also be provided to reinforce this message where appropriate. Street signs have to be attached to lamp posts at a height of more than 6 foot from the base. They are most effective and the beginning of the street or area, however, this may not be possible due to the location of lampposts in the area.
