Pylons for Council Approval

Council Approvals - Pylon signs for on-premises advertising It is advisable to seek the local Councils prior approval for signage you plan in your target area. At Signs4sa we have extensive experience in Council submissions and approvals for Pylon or Billboard structures

Pylons, as a preferred advertising type, for instance

  • “pylon” means a structure designed solely for advertising purposes to which an advertising sign is attached, supported by or displayed on or a combination of such signs, for the purpose of on-premises advertising.
  • Pylon comes in various sizes and can be illuminated or none illuminated
  • It also comes in a double-sided view or single-sided.


Any pylon must be independently supported and for that purpose, it must be firmly secured to an adequate foundation in the ground and be entirely self-supporting without the aid of guys, stays, brackets or any other restraining device.

The dimensions of a pylon and its associated advertising sign must be such that the entire assembly, whether stationary or actuated, can be contained within a notional vertical cylindrical figure having the required diameter and height.

There is restriction such as… No activated or protruding part of a pylon sign or of an advertising sign associated with it may be less than a certain length above the highest point of the existing ground level immediately below that pylon.

Freestanding Pylon Signs Are The Most Effective Form Of On-Site Advertisement

Outdoor pylon signs come in different shapes and sizes, but no matter what business you’re talking about, they have a clear concise purpose that points consumers towards their establishment and invites them to enjoy what the company has to offer. No matter what shape, colour, size a pylon sign might be, their value lies in where the sign is located. There are some who think the best place is right on the building itself, while others, the people who really understand the value of signage, will venture to say that a freestanding pylon sign can’t be rivaled in effectiveness.

The Importance Of Pylon Signage

Whether it contains illuminated channel letters, neon lettering, an LED message centre, a pylon sign on the front of your business is the least costly means of advertising available to you over time. It is also the most targeted advertising you can do. Your sign constantly advertises your business to a potential customer who frequents the area where your business is located.
