Signage Bylaw

Auckland Council and Auckland Transport jointly drafted a new bylaw to ensure that safety is not compromised by poorly designed, located or maintained signs.

The new bylaw seeks to ensure that:

  • signage does not compromise vehicular or pedestrian safety
  • groups, individuals and businesses still have the opportunity to use public spaces to promote their service, product, goods or event.

The bylaw includes general requirements for all signage (except election signs), and has further requirements for particular types of signage including portable signage, posters, event signage and real estate signage.

It has been developed to work alongside the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan. The new bylaw came into effect on 1 October 2015.
