Draft Signage Strategy – Have your say

Council is inviting all members of the community to ‘have your say’ on the Draft Signage Strategy until Monday 11 November.

Earlier this year, Council undertook the process of developing a Draft Signage Strategy which has identified a number of inconsistencies and improvements regarding signage across the Shire.

With ever-increasing visitor numbers to the Bellingen Shire, signage is a crucial part of creating a positive and consistent visitor experience as well as directing both locals and visitors throughout the Shire. Improved tourism and wayfinding signage will assist the development of a strong brand identity for the Bellingen Shire.

Signage should be friendly and engaging, provide valuable information about the attractions, facilities and services available and enable people to navigate safely and easily from place to place. Appropriately designed and welcoming town and Shire entry signage will create a positive first impression and foster pride within our communities.

The purpose of the Signage Strategy is to create a consistent, strategic approach to tourism and wayfinding signage throughout the Shire. It will also ensure that all future signage is implemented with appropriate design and consideration that is guided by the aspirations of the community.

The draft Signage Strategy is now on public exhibition. Council encourages any member of the public to provide feedback on the strategy to help inform the process moving forward. The Draft Signage Strategy will be on public exhibition until Monday 11 November 2019.
