The main purpose of regulating advertising signs is to ensure public safety and that they complement the surrounding environment. Advertising signs may be temporary, mobile or permanent. The approval also considers any structure forming part of the sign and its location on the building/property on which it is to be erected.

Different regulations and laws apply to advertising signs depending on whether they are permanent or temporary and whether they are on private or Council land.
