Local Laws Officers look after such issues as litter and footpath trading. Council has a Footpath Trading Code and a Local Law No. 1 permit may be required to place items on or above the footpath.
Items that require a permit outdoors include:
- Goods for sale
- Planter boxes
- Umbrellas, heaters, etc.
- Furniture (i.e. tables and chairs)
- Sandwich boards
Council may approve a permit for items on the footpath provided the items do not pose a significant risk to pedestrians or traffic, negatively impact on street aesthetics or impeded movement or access. If a permanent building fixture is needed, a building or planning permit may be required. To be eligible for a permit you must have public liability insurance.
