the government small print that threatens to put thousand of tradies out of business

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Most tradies have their business name on their work trailers. They use these trailers to carry out their work.

Council have started issuing $1,500 and $3,000 fines to tradies.

A recent amendment by the NSW Government to SEPP 64 includes clause 27a. The purpose of the amendment was to ban advertising trailers.

Advertising trailers are those annoying trailers parked on the side of the road with no purpose, they never move and they take up parking spaces.

Councils have got it wrong and they have now started issuing fines to tradies for having their business name on their work trailers targeting them as advertising trailers. This is contrary to their own legislation and council won’t admit they have made a big mistake by fining tradies.

If we do not fight the action of council issuing fines, so many small (and large) businesses across the state will be affected.

Council have got this all wrong - This is just the tip of the iceberg and the future implications may well extend to signage on cars, trucks, shops and god knows what else.

Clause 27A(3) CLEARLY states that tradie trailers are exempt from the legislation.

This government small print could threaten hundreds of thousand of tradies out of business as they rely on this branding to support their work.
