Will I Need Council Approval?
Plans & permits, this depends on the nature of signage and your local council… Some councils allow existing signage to be replaced with new graphics without approval, others will insist that demolition/development applications are submitted for approval before changes are made.
Rules vary across councils; some do require approval for all external signage deployment only, yet signage behind retail/service providers windows is usually exempt.
Always check with your local council requirements before authorising commencement of changes to existing signage or installation of any new external work. Bokay can help you with the necessary plans and images required for your application (fee applies).
What if my business is inside a shopping centre?
Typically, tenants of large shopping centres have guidelines provided to them by Centre Management to comply with. Bokay can assist you through this process and help you understand the requirements of the shopping centre, and the types of signage that both comply with the centre’s standards as well as meet your objectives for promoting your business.
