Council Signage Bylaws

Each local Council may have their own signage bylaw(s) to control forms of advertising. For example, Auckland Council’s signage bylaw provides the following rules for placing sandwich board advertisements:

  • Sandwich boards must not be placed on any road or verge unless this is directly outside the store;
  • Only one board is allowed per store; and
  • Boards must be 'waist height' and the width of your arm (or 1.2m high and 0.6m wide).

Signage rules apply to all retail outlets, including licensed premises.
