Proposed legislative changes to the SEPP
What's this about?
The department seeks feedback on the proposed changes to:
- State Environmental Planning Policy No. 64 – Advertising and Signage (SEPP 64)
- Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000 (Regulation)
Key changes proposed
- Councils can approve parked trailer advertising on private land seen from roads, road shoulders, footpaths and nature strips.
- Councils can issue fines for trailer advertising on roads, road shoulders, footpaths and nature strips and when displayed on private land without valid consent.
- The government will repeal SEPP 64 Clause 16(4)(b) to allow advertising in transport corridors with consent.
Changes to the SEPP will address issues raised during the community consultation on the draft Transport Corridor Outdoor Advertising and Signage guidelines.
The draft changes to the guidelines, which were exhibited from 11 December 2015 to 7 February 2016, included requirements and assessment criteria for the design, location and operation of electronic signage, aimed at reducing the distracting nature of digital signs.
