Consultation has concluded


The existing Council policy and guideline were reviewed as part of the policy alignment project. It was determined that a new policy and supporting guideline for hoardings and scaffolding was required. The new policy applies best practice and modern standards for the use and construction of temporary structures in the LGA. This new policy meets the needs of the organisation and the community.

This policy

This policy aims to set a consistent approach in the control on design and construction of hoarding and any associated scaffolding throughout the LGA. These documents reinforce Council’s commitment to public safety by ensuring temporary structures erected on public places are designed and installed to allow for the safe movement of vehicles and pedestrians while minimising the impact on the City’s visual appearance and maximising the protection of public infrastructure.

This policy applies to temporary structures erected on, adjacent to, or above Council-owned land. Approval for these structures is required under s68 and s94 of the Local Government Act 1993, and s138 and s139 of the Roads Act 1993.

A supporting guideline to this policy has been compiled, providing the required design parameters with the use of architectural illustrations and photos to guide designers, builders, architects, engineers and the general public in better understanding Council’s requirements.

This policy is aligned to the Liveable and Distinctive destination of the CBCity 2036 Community Strategic Plan
