It's fair to say the current Gold Coast Council will have plenty of new faces after the upcoming local government election - including a new Mayor. The current council has a lot more to worry about than whether or not signs are out 20 minutes early and at a time when they are more than aware that local property sales are languishing at their lowest level in years it's reasonable to expect they would be more responsive to the industry's needs. It's time they got some perspective on this but speaking to current councillors, including Councillor Pforr is and will remain a waste of time. Wait for the post election period and talk to the new team.

If anyone in the insurance industry is reading this, is the agent covered should anyone fall or trip over one of these signs? Maybe the councils are doing the agents a favour in hindsight. Better a $2000 fine than a $200,000 law suit, is my view.

It does sound excessive.Agents need to be reminded of Council Regulations. It is many years since my Council published their regulations.We are constantly being retrained on State Government regulations, but do not hear from Councils.Let reason reign, please!

I believe the legislation states that there is a half an hour allowance for directional to go up prior to the open home. So to the person who put them up 2 hours before he has only himself to blame and that has been in force for some 10 maybe 11 years to my knowledge unless it has changed. I agree that it is petty law but I can remember when neighbourhoods had a ribbon of signs running all over the place all weekend. The legislation came in because of the community complaints not local government then local government acted on the complaints.

What a joke - when state, federal, or local elections are on our suburbs are plastered with signs - and they stay there for weeks post election. This is just another govt. idiosy. Do as I say but not as I do !!!
