All advertising must face inwards towards the playing surface.

Council adopted the Sports Facilities Advertising Policy on 26 April 2016.

The policy acknowledges that sponsorship agreements incorporating advertising signage provide sports clubs with an important source of income that helps support the provision of sporting activities and opportunities.

The objectives of the policy are to:

  • ensure that advertising and signage:
    • does not cause loss of amenity (physical or visual) to the natural or built environment;
    • does not have a detrimental effect on the natural or built environment; and
    • does not have a detrimental effect on the safety, appearance and efficiency of use of any public area.
  • regulate and maintain a degree of uniformity in the extent of advertising and signage permitted at open space areas and associated facilities throughout the City
  • provide opportunities for Council, community and sporting groups to access sponsorship funding for the maintenance and embellishment of community, recreation and sporting facilities
  • ensure signage is securely fixed so that the possibility of injury to any person or damage to any Council asset is avoided
  • ensure the message being presented on signage is not seen to be offensive or discriminatory by a reasonable person.

The delegated authority is to ensure that signs are installed in accordance with the policy. Should you require further information or are unsure as to whether a sign complies with the policy, please contact Council.
