Directional signs prohibited in Surrey; members risk sign removal and fines
A bylaw officer from the City of Surrey has notified the Board of several complaints recently from residents who are knowledgeable about the city's Sign By-Law pertaining to real estate directional signs and have called to ask the city to remove a number of them from corners, intersections and boulevards all over the city.
Each sign taken will incur a fine of $100. It is the city's policy to remove directional signs on a regular basis.
A-frame style open house signs are permitted for the duration of an open house only – not for days, weeks or months. For more information on Surrey's sign requirements, call 604.591.4370.
In general, any real estate signs which block city or provincial right-of-ways or which are placed on telephone, street lamp or hydro poles are not allowed by local municipalities. It is the responsibility of each member to familiarize themselves with the requirements of local sign by-laws and check for updates.
