Council has approved a new framework for how community and commercial signs on Council land are managed.
This will ensure signage erected on Council land doesn’t detract from the character and amenity of the region.
The Signage Policy provides clarity around what signage is appropriate, where it should be located and what approvals are needed, including policies that address commercial advertising and community promotional signage.
The Policy sits alongside Location Guidelines that identify dedicated areas in townships where temporary community messaging and community event signage can be erected.
The Location Guidelines also place conditions around the size, appearance, maintenance and duration of temporary signage on Council land.
Signage Guidelines approved by Council provide direction on specific examples and consents required.
By-Law 2 - Moveable Signs relate specifically to signs of a transportable (non-fixed) nature under the Local Government Act 1999. This does not include a moveable sign that directs people to a current open inspection or a garage sale that is being held on residential premises.
