Election Advertising and Signs

The Town of Mosman Park Signs, Hoardings and Bill Posting Local Law deals with restriction on where signs can be erected.

1.  Signs must not be placed:

  • to obstruct of impede all or part of the view which may be enjoyed from a street, way, footpath, public place or private property of a river, the sea or any other place or feature of natural beauty;
     
  • so as to obstruct or impede the sight lines required for the free and safe movement of traffic in, to, or from any street, way, footpath, public place or private property;
     
  • so as to be likely to be confused with or mistaken for an official traffic light or sign or so as to contravene the Main Roads Act 1982 or the Regulations made thereunder;
     
  • except with the approval of the Council on any ornamental tower, spire, dome or similar architectural feature or on a lift machinery room, bulkhead over stairs or other superstructure over the main roof of a building or structure;
     
  • on any land that is zoned in the District Zoning Scheme as residential or used for residential purposes other than a site of lawful non-confirming use other than residential, unless specifically permitted in [the Town’s] By-laws;

  • so as to have all or any part thereof projected, flashing, animated, moving or rotating; or
     
  • in or at any site, location or position where, in the opinion of the Council, the advertisement will not be harmonious with the surroundings in the locality in which the advertisement is proposed to be sited, located or positioned or where Council considers it will be undesirable for reasons to be stated by the Council.
