When building new premises for your business, or moving into an existing building, you want to tell the world that you’re there. To show potential clients and leads where you are, what you do, and how to contact you.
But unfortunately, putting up a sign to advertise your business isn’t that easy. While you want your business name written large, there are some strict regulations that it must comply with.
Among other things, did you know that:
- Your sign can’t be higher than the eaves of your building
- Otherwise, you need approval for a business sign that’s higher than 15 metres
- You need consent from the landowner to erect your sign
- You need approval if the sign is near to or over a public road
- You can’t install a sign on heritage-listed property
- You must seek approval for an illuminated sign in a zoned residential area, and it can only be illuminated during set hours
There are many more strict regulations your building sign needs to comply with, and getting to grips with them all can feel like a whirlwind.

We take care of the process for you, from start to finish, to take the headache out of your approvals and help your building signage come to life.
