Footpath Trading & Outdoor Advertising

Footpath Trading

Council is committed to supporting retail traders in creating a dynamic and pleasant streetscape atmosphere.

It allows for outdoor dining including tables and chairs, screens, umbrellas, display of goods and temporary advertising signs on public streets.

The policy requires footpath trading to be on the kerbside of the footpath. This allows the front of the shops to act as a shoreline by providing pedestrian-friendly access to all people and is consistent with the policies of many other Victorian councils.

Please see the following page for more details and how to apply for a Footpath Trading Permit: Footpath Trading and Access Policy.
