Illegal Billboard Clamp-Down

21 December 2000

A registration system for new and existing billboards is supported by Auckland City’s Planning and Regulatory Committee and will be recommended for funding next year.

The comprehensive numbering system would minimise the proliferation of illegal billboards around the city and cost about $153,000 to implement.

Existing billboards would be surveyed to determine if they have existing use rights and new billboards would need to comply with the rules before being given a registration number.

Planning and Regulatory chair Cr Juliet Yates says the proposed system would provide certainty for the industry, council and the community and it would be very straightforward to administer once established.

“It is a means by which we can control the number of billboards and clamp-down on those that are illegal,” she said. “A similar system works well in Australia and ours could be modelled along those lines.”

Gordon Campbell: On National Spreading Panic About The Economy


It is a political strategy as old as time. Scare the public with tales of disaster and stampede them into supporting your ideological agenda because they believe There Is No Alternative. Yet, if the NZ economy truly is as “fragile” as PM Christopher Luxon says it is... Then how come New Zealand has enjoyed a double AA+ credit rating from the international rating agencies for so long? If we have truly been in the thrall of incompetent tax, spend and borrow extremists for the past six years, how come our net government debt burden is only in the middling average of OECD countries, and how come our government debt-to-GDP ratio – however you measure it – is less than half the average for the Asia-Pacific region?..
