usurping the ‘no billboards’ rule for canberra?

By astrojax 8 April 2010 24

so, canberra is famous for not allowing bilboard advertising, right?

so why is there a large inflatable animal spruiking an entertainment event (shan’t give them the pleasure of naming and so advertising) erected in the yard of the house at the corner of limestone and chisholm, ainslie?

it is in someone’s private property, granted, but clearly is designed to be seen by passing traffic – thus becoming a public billboard for mine…  does anyone else have an issue with this?  how is it allowed and are there any regulations being contravened here, that you know of?

I am sorely tempted to whitewash over the bus stop ads as a form of civil disobedience . . .

And I too detest those water use billboards. They make me angry. All they tell me is that the random ‘limit’ for water usage is set artificially and arbitrarily low (the city continually went over by a fair margin over summer). I think we are all doing what we can to be economical with water, so why persist in trying to put the guilts on the Community? It is now up to the Government to be planning another dam NOW, not just resting on their Cotter-dam-extension-decision ‘laurels’. We are clearly going to need another dam in the not-so-distant future. They are just going to have to bite the bullet and get on with the Tennent (as planned for Canberra) or we will be in this situation again in 20 years. Sorry, but legless lizards and Macquarie perch are just not as important as people’s water needs.

I reckon the water use signs are superb. I ALWAYS check them. If nothing else, it means I give some thought to my water use at least one to two times a day. Sometimes six or seven depending on the day.
