Use of Council Controlled Land

A licence is required for use of Local Government Controlled Areas, Facilities and Roads.

If you are wanting to run a business out of a vehicle, for example a seafood trailer or ice cream van and you will be operating in a Council controlled area such as a park, car park, on a road or beach a Mobile or Static Roadside Vending permit will be required.

Council has also introduced new guidelines regarding the use of Council controlled areas such as footpaths. This will ensure the safe and consistent use of footpath areas throughout the Shire. If someone wishes to use a footpath area to display "A" frame signs, store goods or utilise the area for dining for example, they will require a permit. Please see Commercial Use of Footpath Guideline for further information.

If you require a licence for any of the above uses of Council controlled areas please complete the Application for Use of Local Government Controlled Areas, Facilities and Roads. If the licence you require is for the use of a footpath the Footpath site plan template is available to assist you with your site plan.
