More than 40 signs are listed in the Local Law.
Some are “self-assessable” (they can be displayed without making an application) subject to prescribed conditions, e.g. garage sale signs for which only one can be displayed on a footway on the day of the sale.
Others are “licensable” (there is an application and approval process), e.g. billboards and bus shelter advertisements.
