Permits for real estate signs
If your real estate business operates in Banyule and you want to place signs in the street to promote properties for sale, then you will need a permit.
We allow for 2 types for signs:
- A-frame: portable open for inspection or auction board (sandwich board).
- pointer sign: fixed signs identifying a Real Estate Agent or indicating by arrow a property for sale.
Permits must be renewed on 31 October each year.
Restrictions on placing signs
A-frames must not be more than 0.5 square metres in size and must include the time open for inspection or time of auction.
They can be placed on the nature strip, or the kerb side of the footpath if there is no nature strip. They must be secure, not obstruct the vision of drivers or pedestrians, and can't be on roundabouts or median strips.
A-frames can only be displayed on the day that the properties are open for inspection or for auction, and must removed within 1 hour of completion time.
Agencies can have a maximum of 3 signs per property, and a maximum of 9 signs on our streets.
Flags are not permitted to hang over the footpath. They must be contained within the property they are advertising.
Pointer signs are not permitted to be placed on Council land.
We will withdraw a permit if you breach permit conditions
