While walking on the beach recently, I noticed a tall advertisement banner planted in the sand, on the beach side of Hyatt. Is this permitted?
Auntie’s answer: Advertising is not allowed without getting formal permission. A Ministry of Planning official explained that a banner sign on the beach would require approval from the Department of Planning.
At this point, I cannot confirm that permission has been granted or denied, but I can tell you that the ministry has contacted the department, which is going to have their compliance people investigate.
I will check back with the department to ascertain whether the banner is legal or illegal and what, if any, action planning will be taking.
And if anyone has any complaints related to planning issues, they can email the department directly, though I am always ready and willing to facilitate the process.
