Signs and hoardings
Signs can play a significant role in promoting a business by advertising a business name, location, opening times and other details that distinguish a business from the competition.
Look at signage options to determine which one best suits a business need.
What type of approval is required?
Signage can become a hazard when used incorrectly. Depending on the type of sign or advertising that is proposed, planning approval is required and applications for signage must be submitted to Planning Services using the form in related links below.
Some signs can be displayed without any approvals if planning legislation exempts them. Such exemptions are dependent on size, location and sign face of the proposed sign/advertising device.
Please refer to Council Policy LPP 4.9 Signage and Flags below for further advice.
