9.3.1 Advertising devices
This code applies to the assessment of operational work for placing an advertising device on a road corridor or on premises, where the code is identified as applicable in the tables of assessment.
- The purpose of the advertising devices code is to:
- Facilitate economic activity through the advertising of business, products, services and to share information with the community.
- Provide unique and creative static and digital signage that contributes to the character and vibrancy of the setting.
- Ensure that advertising devices do not adversely affect visual amenity, the character of the local area and public safety.
- The purpose of the code will be achieved through the following overall outcomes:
- An advertising device complements, and does not detract from, the desirable characteristics of the natural and built environment in which the advertising device is exhibited.
- An advertising device is designed and integrated on the site so as to minimise visual clutter, particularly along major road corridors.
- An advertising device does not pose a hazard for pedestrians, cyclists or drivers of motor vehicles.
- An advertising device does not unreasonably impede views, sunlight or breezes for residents on adjoining sites, or create nuisance as a result of noisy, flashing or illuminated devices.
