  • Fundraiser (e.g. cake stall, sausage sizzle, car wash)
  • Display or Information Booth
  • Display of Goods for Sale
  • Footpath Dining
  • Mobile Roadside Vending
  • Stationary Roadside Vending 
  • Musical or Theatrical Performance (e.g. busking)

An application for a permit for use of a road or footpath must be submitted to Council with the appropriate form (Application for Permit for Use of Road/Footpath), details of public liability insurance (a minimum cover of $5 million is required), and the applicable fee (PDF 981.1KB).
