Signage Bylaw 2015
The Signage Bylaw regulates promotional signs so they are safe, don't cause a nuisance and keep Auckland looking good.
You should know
We are reviewing the Signage Bylaw 2015 to make sure it meets the needs of Aucklanders, now and in the future.
We are proposing a new Signage Bylaw 2022 and associated controls. You can find out about the proposal and give feedback at akhaveyoursay.auckland.govt.nz
We will let you know of the outcome when the review is finished.
