For window sign allowances, go to the
Unitary Plan and refer to the ‘Built environment’ section to determine whether the site has a key retail frontage overlay.
There are options for both situations.
Key retail frontage overlay
If the business has a key retail frontage overlay then window signage on the ground floor must not be more than 25 per cent of the width of the window and 25 per cent of the height.
No key retail frontage overlay
- Window signage on the ground floor of a building can be up to 50 per cent of the width of the window and 50 per cent of its height if the business fronts a street or public open space area.
- Window signage that fronts a public open space area on the rear or side boundary may have up to 70 per cent of the width of the window and 25 per cent of the height.
