We aim to ensure footpath trading is undertaken in a safe and well-regulated manner. Latrobe City Council and local traders must comply with the Disability Discrimination Act 1992, which ensures equal access for all, regardless of age or ability. This means that everyone, including people with vision impairment or limited mobility and parents with prams, must be able to travel safely along footpaths without being impeded by merchandise stands, furniture or advertising signs.
Before you start any outdoor trading activities for your business such as outdoor dining, displaying an A-Frame etc. you should review the guidelines.
Are you starting a new business we can provide information on the requirements of your business including Planning, Building, Local Laws, or Health requirements you need to consider.
We encourage you to book a time with our Business Approvals Officer who will organise a meeting with the required Council business units to discuss your requirements.
