Advertising Devices – Proposed Local Law Amendments

Proposed local law framework

Advertising devices will no longer be regulated by Council’s new planning scheme. Both temporary and permanent advertising devices will instead be regulated under a local law framework when the new planning scheme comes into effect.

Draft amendments to Council’s local laws have now been prepared (proposed local law) to consolidate advertising device provisions currently operating under The Noosa Plan and two local laws.

The proposed local law:

  • identifies advertising devices that:
    • are self-assessable and don’t require approval or licencing;
    • require approval and annual licencing;
    • are prohibited;
  • includes specific and general criteria and conditions to be met; and
  • introduces a new approvals process and annual licencing renewal system.

Purpose of proposed local law

The purpose of the proposed local law is to ensure the ongoing regulation and management of advertising devices to maintain the character and ‘look and feel’ of Noosa Shire.

The majority of existing advertising device requirements have been maintained, with key changes aimed at:

  • prohibiting sign types inconsistent with the character of Noosa;
  • reducing visual sign clutter within the streetscape; and
  • responding to key issues and compliance matters arising from the advertising signs audit.
