Advertising signs for your business

You may require a permit to display signage for your business.

Types of Signs

Advertising Signs on Private Land

You can apply to Council to put up a temporary, mobile or permanent sign. When we review your application, we will consider its structure and location on a building or property.


If you're ready to apply for a permit to place advertising sign on private land for your business, you can do so in our Small Business Combined Permit Application Form.

Contact Council’s Planning Department on 03 5734 6200 or email mitchell@mitchellshire.vic.gov.au to find out if you need a permit. Fees may apply.

A-Frame Signboards

A permit is required to display an advertising signboard on Council property, including footpaths and road reserves.

Advertising signboard permits expire on 30 June each year and need to be renewed.

To apply you can either fill in the required section of the Small Business Combine Permit Application Form or download and complete the application below.

Submit either of these, with the required supporting documentation, and an officer will call you to take payment over the phone. Alternatively, you can submit the form below along with the supporting documents, at one of our Customer and Library Service Centres and an officer will email you an invoice.
