The requirements for exempt community advertising are as follows:
- The banner is a temporary advertisement for a religious, cultural, political, social or recreational event only
- Maximum area of 4m2
- Sponsorship information is a maximum of 20% of the total area of the banner displayed at the venue or the sponsor’s premises
- The banner is erected a maximum of 28 days before the event
