Mobile food trading on Council land outside of approved special events requires both an approval under section 68 of the Local Government Act 1993 and consent of Council as the land owner.
Taking into account that Council’s policy does not endorse commercial activities in public parks and reserves, it is unlikely that such consent/approval will be granted. Also, in the interests of public safety Council will not approve mobile food vending in publicly owned car parks or on the roadside of any public road.
Mobile food and drink outlets operating on public land in conjunction with an approved event must be included into the application for such an event and be incorporated into the corresponding approval. An approval under section 68 of the Local Government Act 1993 may also be required.
