A-frame signs in Valley Malls
An A-frame Sign is a portable, freestanding advertisement, normally supported by an ‘A’ or inverted ‘T’ frame. Brisbane City Council supports businesses in the Valley Malls to display one A-frame sign and regulates this through permits to maintain safety and amenity.
When you need a permit
Any business in the Brunswick Street or Chinatown Malls will need a permit before displaying an A-frame sign outside their premises.
Payment of fees will be required when you lodge your application to Brisbane City Council. The fee comprises three parts:
|Fee type||Application fee|
