Proposed Auckland City Ban On Billboards – “From The Sublime To The Ridiculous”
“Billboards are part of the tradition and personality of downtown Auckland. They give Auckland City a point of difference, vibrancy and life compared to other world cities,” says Auckland Chamber of Commerce CEO Michael Barnett.
Obviously there needs to be some management of the billboards’ content and location, as no doubt occurs in other world cities with strong billboard personalities such as Times Square in New York and Piccadilly Circus in London.
“With the significant revenue loss the City is also proposing to forego, banning billboards is bureaucracy gone mad!”
