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 will be 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.

From 17 February 2020, a 12-month moratorium will be in place.

Permit requirements and permit fees will not apply until 15 February 2021.

Mobile business vendors and signage owners will need to apply for a permit during this time.

For more information, read the guidelines for advertising and activities in NT Government road reserves.
