Additional comments or information in relation to this application 



If your establishment qualifies for tourist accommodation road signs, it is your responsibility as the operator to ensure the business continues to comply with the criteria for your type of accommodation signing.  If the accommodation is found to no longer comply with the criteria then DPTI may remove the sign.  All tourist accommodation signs are approved on this basis.  It is a requirement that operators indicate they accept this condition as part of their application.

All approvals are granted for an 8 year period.  After this period DPTI may ask you to demonstrate that the accommodation still qualifies for signage.
