Council considers the following when assessing a new application for a standing street stall:
- That the stall is providing a useful community service
- Proximity to Council assets (bus stops, city cycle stations etc.)
- Tactile ground surface indicators for the visually impaired
- How the operator plans to manage potential hazards to pedestrian traffic (i.e. How they plan to manage queuing and customer access)
- 2.4m pedestrian clearance must be maintained
- The location of the standing stall must not obstruct another business or their advertising.
Certain stalls setting up on private property may also require a licence. If the stall is located within 6 meters of the footpath (i.e. in a colonnaded area) a standing street stall licence will be required. However, the occupation fee is not charged for these businesses not located on footpath or roadway.
For further information on the requirements for standing street stalls, please contact Council on (07) 3403 8888. Note that the list above is not a complete list and Council may assess your application against other criteria deemed appropriate. It is recommended that specific advice is obtained by contacting Council.
