Community signboard permits

COVID-19 restrictions and pandemic impacts make it difficult to plan ahead, especially activities where people are required to attend in person.  Please consider if your event or activity is postponed or cancelled, there may be difficulties and delays in removing outdoor signage.  We ask you are mindful of this when considering this type of communication.


Council provides two community signboard sites for local not-for-profit organisations or community groups based in Hobsons Bay to display and promote upcoming events.

Community signboard sites:

  • Altona         Corner of Millers Road and Civic Parade (south west corner)
  • Newport     Corner of Walker Street and Mason Street (east of roundabout)


There is an administration fee payable of $45.00 per booking required prior to erecting your signboard. To erect a community signboard at one of the locations listed above, you must complete the online community signboard application form. Early applications recommended, subject to availability.

Please note: Signboards must be no larger than 2.4m x 1.2m in size. 

Prior to completing your application, please review the following documents:
