					Signs
The District Plan defines a sign as follows:
   1 any name, figure, image, character, outline, spectacle, display, delineation,
       announcement, poster, handbill, or an advertising device, appliance, or things of
       a similar advertising nature intended mainly to attract attention, and
   2 placed on or fixed to any land or building, or incorporated in the design of any
       building (whether by painting or otherwise), and
   3 visible from a public space. This excludes signs within buildings and signs for the
       management of the legal road.

Temporary signs advertising a community event, electioneering, identifying
construction sites or subdivision developments, or selling land or premises can be
erected within a Residential Area so long as they meet the conditions outlined in rule
5.1.8.2.

Different areas have different rules relating to such things as size, illumination, and
location. Some signs might be permitted and will not require resource consent. Please
check the conditions below.

A resource consent application will require:

       is what the planning officer’s assessment will be based on.
