  • Must not extend beyond the perimeter of the shelter.
  • Only 1 advertising panel per shelter that may comprise an advertisement on 2 sides.
  • Must not contain flashing or neon signage.
  • Must be positioned to not adversely impact on pedestrian movements.
  • Must not obstruct the line of sight of vehicular traffic or pedestrian traffic.

Exhibition material

  • Extract and minutes from the Infrastructure, Planning and Environmental Services Committee meeting where the proposal was considered
