Rules for election signs

​The Auckland Transport Election Signs Bylaw 2013 has been amended.

The full bylaw and list of approved public election sign sites are available on the Auckland Transport (AT) website.

There are three types of sites for election signs:

  • Private land: Signs on private land are subject to the permission given by the occupant of the site.
  • Approved sites on public land associated with roads (road reserves): These sites are controlled by Auckland Transport. Signs on approved road reserve sites may be erected at any time.
  • Approved sites on public land used as local parks: These sites are controlled by Auckland Council local boards.

Contact us for general enquiries or to report a problem regarding this bylaw.
