Firstly, see if your advertising device fulfils the self-assessable checklist provided by your council or local authority. Approval is not required if your advertisement satisfies each criterion.
If your signage is not self-assessable, it may be code assessable. Code assessable activities require a development assessment application with your local council.
If your signage is beyond the criteria for code assessable, you will need to contact your council or local authority for further information on an Impact Assessment development application.
Once you have your planning approval, you can apply for advertising device approval.
Your application must include:
- evidence that you have either received or applied for development approval
- the written consent of the owner or occupier of the place in which you intend to exhibit the advertisement (if you do not control the space).
