Proposed local laws

Public Notice of proposed Advertisements Amending Subordinate Local Law 2017 for the City of Brisbane.

City of Brisbane Act 2010 - Section 29

Brisbane City Council ("Council") has by resolution proposed to make a subordinate local law entitled Advertisements Amending Subordinate Local Law 2017 ("the proposed amending subordinate local law").

The main purpose of the proposed amending subordinate local law is to update the classifications of signs on land to reflect the current zonings in Council’s planning scheme, Brisbane City Plan 2014. In addition, contemporary and professionally designed drawings have been included to better illustrate the different sign types currently defined in the subordinate local law.

The proposed subordinate local law also makes a number of amendments to the placement of election signs as well as miscellaneous and minor administrative changes to improve the law’s clarity and structure. The changes are not expected to increase the regulatory burden for advertisers, whether they are individuals, businesses or community organisations.

Council is now consulting with the public about the proposed amending subordinate local law.  The consultation period about the proposed amending subordinate local law is 15 business days. The first day of the consultation period begins on 14 August 2017.  The last day of the consultation period is 4 September 2017.
