Footpath stickers & decals

A colourful and vibrant way to promote an event or activity on city footpaths

Footpath stickers can be used within the city and North Adelaide to promote city-based events or public awareness campaigns.

Who can apply?

Organisations and groups wanting to use footpath stickers to promote city-based events or public awareness campaigns can apply for an Objects on footpath permit.

Examples include:

  • public conferences
  • exhibitions
  • civic programs
  • shows
  • sporting events
  • concerts
  • the role of city precincts
  • key charity drives or appeals
  • major events held by charities
  • events of state, national or international significance.

Where can I put stickers?

Footpath areas within the city and North Adelaide can be used for stickers and decals. Locations depend on availability and are approved on a case by case basis.

Please note the following locations are not covered under a City of Adelaide permit as they fall within the jurisdiction of other authorities:


The City of Adelaide's Objects on Footpath Operating Guidelines detail the conditions for footpath stickers. 

If approved, an Objects on footpath permit will cover up to 48 stickers or decals installed in specified locations (with only one sticker permitted at each site) for a maximum period of a month.

Each individual sticker must be less than 1 square metre in size and made from a non-slip material. The use of dark colours (such as black and purple) is not supported as dark stickers may pose a hazard to the vision impaired. Stickers are to be installed in a footpath area that is setback from traffic lights, pedestrian crossings, buildings and street infrastructure.

Please note: from November through to early January there are limited locations available for promotional stickers due to the Christmas in the City campaign. Any applications received during this period will be assessed on a case by case basis.


The permit costs for Objects on footpath (such as footpath stickers) can be found in the City of Adelaide's fees and charges schedule

Fees are based on the total area occupied by the stickers.
