Public comment sought on draft street banner policy

Central Coast Council will seek public comment on draft policies affecting the flying of flags and street banners.

The policies will affect banner poles in West St, Umina, in Ocean View Rd and Picnic Parade, Ettalong, and in The Boulevarde, Woy Woy.

They will affect the roadside banner stand in Rogers Park at the corner of Ocean Beach Rd and McMasters Rd.

The draft banner policy states: "Council currently operates an annual calendar for all locations, with preference given to initiatives that fall under the direct control of Council."

These include council-run events, "activations", and campaigns; the celebration of Christmas; the acknowledgement of Anzac Day, Reconciliation Week and Naidoc Week, and brand identity of the town centres.

"Applications should be submitted at least three months before intended installation date.

"Council reserves the right to decline any application that is not consistent with this policy or the design specifications outlined within the Banner Guide.

"Banners may incorporate national flag elements within the designs provided the flag component does not exceed 50 per cent of the overall size.

However, banners are not appropriate for display of national or official flags alone as per Council's Flying of Flag Policy.

The flag flying policy does not specify any flag poles, but speaks of "flag poles situated on Council-owned and operated public or open spaces" and "flag poles situated on Council operated community facilities".

Flags flown on these will be done so in accordance with State and Federal Protocols.

They will be raised on occasions at the discretion of the Chief Executive Officer.
