Tauranga City Plan

4D  Purpose of Sign Provisions

Updated 9 September 2013

Signs inform the general public of the availability of goods, services or forthcoming events, provide identification of a particular site or premises, or provide directions for traffic or pedestrian movement.

The size, location and nature of signs can have effects on the visual amenity of buildings, sites or areas where they are displayed. In addition, signs can become obtrusive and/or provide a distraction to motorists, particularly when they are illuminated.

The rules included in the Plan are intended to ensure signs are consistent with the landscape character and amenity values of the area within which they are located and to ensure that signs do not adversely affect the safety of motorists or pedestrians.
