Business signage permit applications can be confusing.
Apart from the broad statewide business identification sign requirements, each Council can have their own local policies and/or Overlays that control what signage is permitted and what the application requirements are. It is not one size fits all!
There are various planning triggers that will affect your business signage plans.
Lighting & Illumination
There are specifications for outdoor signage that is illuminated or back lit. Our team can provide guidance and advice to ensure your signage meets the requirements set by Council.
Location (Proximity to Foot Paths, Main Roads & Highways)
Signage location and placement matters a lot, there will be rules that regulate proximity and ensure that your business signage does not become a hazard or distraction to drivers and pedestrians alike. Our team can help ensure your signage design meets relevant policies.
Similarly to “location” above, the content of the signage and the number/extent of signs will be assessed against relevant policies to ensure that it does not become unsightly or overpower the building it is located on or the property it is within.
Our signage permit consultant can provide advice during the design phase, as well as assist in preparing and lodging a signage permit application on your behalf.
