Road reserves: advertising and activities
This page has information about changes to advertising and conducting activities in Northern Territory (NT) road reserves.
Following community and business consultation, a new system has been put in place to manage:
- where and how signs are displayed and
- how activities are conducted in road reserves.
Businesses and community members wanting to advertise or hold an activity in a road reserve will need to become familiar with the new rules.
A 12-month moratorium is currently in place to allow a transition period for the implementation of the Advertising and Activities in NT Government Road Reserves guidelines.
The new rules include:
- From 16 February 2021 the requirements within the guidelines will be enforced.
- Permit fees will not apply until 1 July 2021.
- Mobile business vendors and signage owners will need to apply for a permit.
For more information, read the guidelines.
To read the election signage policy, go to the Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics website.
