Portable signs

Portable signs are only allowed in certain circumstances and, if permitted, a business may have one board or flag sign.

The business can display a sign only if it is:

  • a historic or heritage place
  • a retail outlet which lawfully established the sign before the Signage Bylaw 2015 came into effect.
