The building code defines hoardings as 'structures alongside a public way providing side protection but no overhead protection'. They are required to secure work sites and provide for the adjacent safe passage of pedestrians.

Creative hoardings

Creative Hoardings reinterpret hoardings spaces to enliven the public realm while the city continues to rebuild. Normal hoardings can be transformed into creative hoardings at any time.

There are two Creative Hoardings options for public-facing hoardings: custom and pre-designed.

Rebate for Temporary Use of Legal Road (TUOLR) fees

Creative Hoardings may be eligible for a rebate of up to 100% of temporary use of legal road (TUOLR) fees of $15.30/m2 per month. Terms and conditions apply.

Applying is an easy two-step process. We don't want to hold you up from securing your site with compliant hoardings, so the application for Temporary Use of Legal Road is handled separately to approval for Creative Hoardings artwork.

  1. Send a completed TUOLR Fee Rebate Application to Asset.Protection@ccc.govt.nz. Access the form here.
  2. Seek approval for hoardings artwork. Email EnlivenFunds@ccc.govt.nz(external link) and attach the following:
    • Plan view of your site showing hoardings locations
    • Your Creative Hoardings designs for custom hoardings OR your preferred pre-designed hoardings option
    • Plan view of how your delivery partner information and Health and Safety will be integrated into the overall design

Note: Please allow 10 working days for the application and approval to be processed.

We'll check the final implementation of design against what was proposed. As long as what you have implemented still meets the basis of our approval, the fee rebate will be applied from the date of receipt of proof of implementation.
