Review to ensure objectives

It aims to provide a balance between the economic and community benefits that roadside and footpath trading brings to towns and villages, and the legislative requirements of Council to enhance accessibility and protect the safety of motorists and pedestrians.

The review aims to ensure that the Policy remains current and consistent with its objectives, identify any emerging issues or potential improvements, and ensure that the Policy is easily understandable and enforceable.

Interested community members can view the Roadside and Footpath Trading Policy and have their say on Councils website by visiting roadside and footpath trading policy feedback . All feedback provided on the Policy will be considered throughout the review process and any resulting amendments. This consultation opportunity is open until Friday 10 September.

Economic and social will benefit

Mayor Cr Danny Goss said, "We know the benefits, both economic and socially, that roadside and footpath trading brings to towns right across Baw Baw Shire. Without unduly limiting our businesses, Council has a duty to keep the safety of our community members front-of-mind.

Thats why its so important that we have a Policy in place that brings these two elements together, and thats what this Policy review aims to do. It doesnt matter if youre a business owner or a customer, this Policy affects you, so I encourage everyone to take part in this review and have your say."
