Real estate advertising in road reserves

When advertising in road reserves, you don’t need a permit for real estate advertising signs for:

  • house or property inspections
  • auctions.

However, the following rules apply:

  • you can only use two signs
  • you must display the signs during daylight hours only
  • signs must be:
    • portable and
    • placed at the intersection near the property advertised for inspection
  • the maximum distance from the property being advertised must be:
    • one kilometre and
    • placed where practical in terms of interconnecting roads to the property
  • signs must not be attached to trees, street furniture, other road signs, posts, street lighting, or any traffic infrastructure
  • signs must not be located within roundabouts, median strips or 150m of a traffic intersection
  • you must not use star pickets or vegetation to support the display of materials.

If you don’t comply with the above and the guidelines, the signs will be removed.
