Monash Council is reviewing its Footpath Trading and Access Policy to ensure its outdoor trading areas build on the city’s reputation as a foodie destination, and is seeking community feedback on the proposed changes (until 8 May 2018).
Council’s vision for its outdoor trading areas is for vibrant, attractive and family-friendly areas where the enjoyment and serving of food is the focus.
When a local business wants to make use of an outdoor trading area on Council-owned land, as part of Council’s assessment of these requests under the revised Footpath Trading Policy, we will be wanting to ensure that traders make food available for consumption in these areas at all times, rather than restrict areas to drinking only.

The main changes are to sections 1.2 (Council's vision for outdoor trading areas) and 4.2 (Council’s vision for Eaton Mall).
