Move afoot to ban pavement signs
By David Loughrey
Footpath advertising in Dunedin, whether simple chalk messages or a recent stencil and water blaster method, will be banned if a recommendation to the Dunedin City Council gets support on Tuesday. The ban will only target commercial messages, though, with non-commercial advertising subject to a new permit system.
While the council was committed to supporting and enhancing local business and a vibrant and active street life, there “needs to be some control over the placement of objects on the footpaths to ensure there is always a safe and unobstructed passage for pedestrians of all abilities, and to ensure the visual amenity of our streetscapes is not detrimentally affected.” -Report
