Advertising signs policy
The City of Stirling has an advertising signs policy to:
• Ensure that the display of advertisements on private sites does not adversely impact on the amenity of surrounding land
• Avoid a proliferation of signs on individual sites and buildings
• Improve the streetscape of major roads
• Encourage the rationalisation of advertising signs on individual premises
• Encourage the incorporation of advertising signs into the design consideration of buildings
• Ensure that signs are not discriminatory or offensive
• Ensure that signs only relate to services and products on the site.
In order to achieve these objectives, most signs require a sign licence prior to installation, and certain signs may also require planning approval.
