Local signs policy review launches

April 5, 2024

City of Melbourne is responsible for approving signs visible to the public that require a planning permit such as business identification, promotion and other advertising signs.

The local signs policy in the Melbourne Planning Scheme helps guide the sign application process and what can be approved.

Our current local signs policy was written 20 years ago — and since then a lot has changed. With new technology, a growing population and a changing city landscape, we need to review our planning policies to make sure we're creating a Melbourne fit for everyone.

We are now reviewing our local signs policy and would like your feedback.

Learn more about the types of signs that require a planning permit and share your thoughts on the feedback wall.
