Advertising signage (Redland) - Queensland


Advertising control exists so that advertisements and associated structures complement (or at least do not unreasonably detract from) desirable characteristics of the natural and built environment in which the advertisements appear.

The objects of this local law are to ensure that your business signs and associated structures:

  1. are constructed and maintained to essential standards of public safety
  2. complement the desirable characteristics of the built and natural environment in which the signs are exhibited
  3. are of high quality and are innovatively designed so as to effectively communicate the information contained.

If you are advertising on a state-controlled road, contact the Department of Transport and Main Roads for information on the State Government roadside advertising policy.
