Public Spaces Trading

The Public Places Trading policy provides a framework to ensure that public areas remain safe and accessible, and gives Council a mechanism to regulate trading activities so they do not negatively impact on local amenity and aesthetics of an area.

The policy provides guidance to Council staff and the community to ensure consistent decision-making and implementation in relation to the timing, locations, activities and equipment for trading goods and services on Council owned and managed land.

Changes to the policy include:

  • introduction of Potential Trading Area
  • removal of the number limit of markets within the port precinct
  • administrative updates

A draft of the policy is available below.
