Did you know that the Christchurch City Plan requires resource consent for any new outdoor advertising on buildings that adjoin Important Open Spaces, such as Cathedral Square, the Avon River, Latimer Square, Victoria Square, Worcester Street, Cashel Mall and various other parts of the CBD?
ViaStrada has obtained many Resource Consents for signage in these areas, including a recent application for outdoor advertising associated with the Grant Thornton Building in Cathedral Square. The application included an assessment of the impacts of the proposed signage on the heritage values and visual amenity of Cathedral Square. The signage was designed by Signtech the Signmasters - please see their website for more details.
The Council issued Resource Consent on a non-notified basis in May 2010.
