MEDIA RELEASE - Council's Footpath and Itinerant Trading Policies Open For Public Comment

31 October 2017

Glenelg Shire Council has reviewed its Itinerant Trading and Footpath Trading policies at Tuesday night’s Ordinary Council Meeting.

Council were endorsed with the recommendation to include the two policies in the public submission process for the proposed General Local Law 2018.

The Footpath Trading Policy is to encourage the appearance of a vibrant business district which provides pedestrians with a clear and safe access to footpaths at all times.

Glenelg Shire Council Mayor Cr Anita Rank said it is important for council to set clear requirements around footpath trading to ensure the interests of business and pedestrians are provided for.

“Council is committed to supporting and enhancing the sustainable growth of local business and vibrant street life for the community’s enjoyment,” Cr Rank said.

Council’s Itinerant Trading Policy is to provide council with a framework for the operation and management of itinerant trading within the shire.

Cr Rank said the policy applied to the operation of itinerant trading on all council owned or managed land.

“The major objective in the policy is to ensure that temporary business opportunities are facilitated and managed in a consistent way.

“I encourage all interested and affected people to review both policies and make comment if they wish to.

“Council is dedicated to delivering services that enhance the community by connecting people, places and spaces.”
