Tourism, Community and Service Signage
Signposting within the road reserve is a significant issue within the tourism industry. Port Macquarie-Hastings Council has engaged in lengthy consultation with owners and managers of tourist attractions and service provider enterprises to develop the Guidelines for Tourism, Community and Service Signage.
The guidelines are designed to meet the needs of tourism and service businesses while upholding the basic principles of traffic management and road safety, as well as protecting the scenic beauty of our region and its roadsides.
The guidelines clearly outline the process for applying for directional signs on state, regional and local roads.
The guidelines should be read in conjunction with our Policy for Tourism, Community and Service Signage which has been provided below. This Policy covers all signage proposed within road reserves under the care and control of Council. The Policy also covers directional signage proposed within the Pacific and Oxley Highway road reserves.
If you are interested in applying for tourism, community or service signage, please contact Council on 02 6581 8111.
Please note: The guidelines and application form for Tourism, Community and Service Signage is in the process of being updated. A new form and guidelines will be available to download early in 2013.
