Footpath trading activities are an important part of the Manningham retail experience.
These activities can include:
- outdoor dining with tables and chairs
- placement of goods for sale and display
- display of A-frame advertising boards.
However, pedestrian safety is also a priority and Council has an obligation to ensure that a minimum distance of clear footpath from the property line is maintained so all footpath users can walk through the area safely and unhindered.
You must have a Council permit for the placement of moveable advertising signs, goods, or street furniture on the footpath.
Street furniture includes:
- tables and chairs
- planter boxes
To ensure pedestrian access, community safety and amenity is not compromised, the placement of moveable advertising signs, goods and street furniture is prohibited against the property line/shop front.
