Draft Market Policy

Submissions closing on 02 January 2019, 04:30 PM


Market operators are required to collaborate with Council, local residents, the business community and other agencies to ensure consideration is given to the physical space markets occupy and the people and businesses surrounding them.

The policy relates to all regular markets taking place throughout the MidCoast region on Council owned land or Council controlled public land - including farmers markets.

Festivals and 'one-off' community based events and fundraisers such as annual markets and fetes occurring once a year, and markets taking place on private land will be excluded from this policy. They may however, be subject to a separate approval process such as a Special Event or Development Application.

The policy has been placed on public exhibition and community feedback is welcome.

If you have any comments, please make your submission in writing by 4.30pm on Wednesday 2 January 2019 and quote Council’s reference MARKET POLICY.
