Roadside and location signs are an effective method of advertising your community event.
Signage placed along local Council controlled roads within certain specifications may not require a permit.
The following types of community event signs are permitted on local controlled roads and at the event location.
Community organisation site sign (onsite at event)
This sign is described as being displayed at the site of a fair or festival or similar event providing it meets the following criteria:
- Not illuminated;
- Only displayed for a maximum of 30 days prior to the event;
- Has a maximum face area of 2.5m2 in a residential zone or 5m2 in all remaining zone categories;
- Is removed within 2 days of event finish; and
- There are no more than 2 signs per location.
This means you could have 2 corflute or canvas style event signs at the location of your event (e.g. Redland Showgrounds).
Directional community organisation site sign (roadside signs)
This sign is described as not being at the site of the fair or festival or similar event and has the primary purpose of directing traffic to the event providing it meets the following criteria:
- Not illuminated;
- Has a maximum face area of 0.6m2 when placed on a road or public place;
- Has a maximum face area of 2.4m2 when placed on private property;
- Is displayed for a maximum period of 14 days prior to the event advertised on the sign and is removed within 2 days of the event finishing; and
- Is sited so as not to cause unsafe movement or obstruction of pedestrian or vehicular traffic.
You must also comply with the following:
- For signs placed on a public road, you must have public liability insurance at a minimum of $20,000,000 against claims for personal injury or property damage resulting from displaying the sign
- Place no more than 15 signs on private property
- Place no more than 10 signs on roads and public places
This means you could have 10 roadside signs on Council local controlled roads no bigger than 0.6m2 (standard corflute signs with timber spike at 900mm x 600mm fit within this criteria) providing you have Public Liability Insurance for $20,000,000 and installed 14 days prior to event and removed 2 days after event in a safe location not impeding or obstructing pedestrian or vehicular traffic.
