About the Advertising Signage Design Guidelines

The Advertising Signage Design Guidelines Draft and associated documentation was prepared by Council in consultation with stakeholders. Council adopted to support exhibition of the Draft at the Council meeting on 21 October 2019 and it was exhibited from Monday 28 October to Friday 22 November 2019.

The Advertising Signage Design Guidelines will:

  • provide a consistent approach for the design and placement of outdoor advertising signs
  • include information on the types of signs allowed on land and buildings and how many are permitted
  • include information on the positioning of large signs to maintain road safety, visual amenity and avoid clutter
  • provide a clear process for Council to assess requests for signs

The guidelines will be useful for developers, building owners, building tenants, planning permit applicants and residents.

Council resolved to adopt the Advertising Signage Policy 2020 and to seek authorisation to prepare Amendment C264 at the Council meeting on 17 February 2020.
