Commercial Activities on Footpaths

Footpaths are a shared resource managed by the Council. If you want to use the footpath or road for advertising, have goods for sale, or trade, such as outdoor dining or fundraising, you will need to apply to the Council for a permit. 

You can download the following forms for permit applications. Call the Council on 03 5760 2600 for further information or to make an appointment to speak with us about permit requirements. You can also fill in the online forms using the navigational structure above.
