  • The Licensee is to provide to Council, on an annual basis, a copy of their Public Liability Insurance (minimum $20 million) indemnifying Georges River Council.
  • The signs have no protrusions, no sharp corners and are stable.
  • There is a minimum of 2 metres clearance to any other obstructions on the footpath such as poles, litter bins, seats, etc. with a 600mm setback from the face of the kerb.
