To run your business in one of Council's open spaces, you will need to apply for a permit. These businesses might include:
- personal training
- boot camps
- regional tours
- dog training
- hiring goods, such as paddleboards
- ongoing commercial photography, such as family portraits every Saturday at the same location
Council regulates outdoor businesses to make sure they operate safely and are considerate to other people using public spaces.
Businesses that sell goods or food and drinks need different permits. Find out more selling goods in public places and food business licences.
You need to submit your application at least eight weeks before you start your activity.
Once all supporting documents have been provided, your application will be reviewed and assessed under Local Law No 1 (Administration) 2011. Schedule 8(c). We may consult with key stakeholders. It may take up to 30 business days from assessment to decision once all supporting documents have been provided.
