The City has developed legislation to help control the placement of signs. Before installing a sign you must first ensure that you obtain the necessary approval.

In order to ensure that signage is used to its best advantage, organisations, businesses and property owners are encouraged to keep signage to a minimum and focus more on providing short, distinct signage and branding through the use of limited number of words and suitable contrasting colours and text that make signs distinct and clearly legible. The use of street numbering on a building or on another structure at the property line or both, in clear and legible numbers is also strongly encouraged, as another means to assist the public in finding a property or place.

The following legislation relates to signage applications and it should be noted that while a sign may be exempt from the need for a planning approval under the City's Town Planning Scheme, you may still require an approval under the Local Laws and a Building Permit may also need to be obtained.

Your sign application process

Because of the varied purpose of signs and different pieces of legislation, there are a number of different sections within the City who you will need to refer to in respect to your sign proposal.
