New local law and update to footpath trading policy

Consultation closing on 22 March 2021

We are undertaking consultation on both a revised draft Local Law and a draft Footpath Trading and Access Policy and are inviting the community to provide feedback.

Council’s current Local Law No.4 - Prohibition on Smoking expires on 30 September 2021. The proposed Smoke Free Areas Local Law will revoke the current Local Law and provide a way for Council to prescribe areas within the municipality to be smoke free from time to time.

Council will also update its Footpath Trading and Access Policy so that for any public footpath areas available for trade, there is a requirement that food must be made available for consumption at all times when these areas are in use. Consistent with Victoria’s Tobacco Act, as long as food is commercially available, smoking is prohibited.

Consultation is underway on 2 projects (closing 22 March 2021):

Smoke Free Outdoor Trading – online survey

Smoke Free Areas Local Law – make a submission

A telephone survey on both matters is being conducted JWS Research during February and March 2021
