Before erecting any signage within the Taupo area it is necessary to conform with all relevant standards imposed by us. Please follow these steps to ensure compliance.

Firstly, identify the environment that the sign is to be erected:

  • Residential
  • Rural
  • Town centre
  • Industrial

If you are unable to identify your environment you will need to refer to the maps in the District Plan

All four environments must also comply with the our Bylaws on signage.

Any signage exceeding the standards in the Bylaw will require a Resource Consent.

If the proposed signage is for a new commercial venture we advise you ensure the venture complies with all relevant rules and requirements.

 If you require assistance please contact our planning liaison officer on - (07) 376 0899
