Footpath Trading Guidelines

Footpath Trading Guidelines (PDF 851.10K)

Council encourages vibrant and economically viable shopping precincts with safe and accessible pedestrian spaces. As the popularity of outdoor dining and footpath trading increases, there is a need to provide clear guidelines for the use of public footpaths for the purpose of outdoor dining and product display.

These guidelines apply to all public footpaths and public thoroughfares in shopping centres in Manningham, on both Council owned and private property. The guidelines provide clear direction to traders applying for a Footpath Trading Permit.

Footpath trading activities – such as outdoor dining with tables and chairs, the placement of goods for sale and display, and the display of A-frame advertising boards – are an important part of the Manningham retail experience.
