Apply for a footpath occupancy permit

You would need a footpath occupancy permit if you:

  • trade on the footpath with outdoor dining
  • display goods on the footpath
  • use an A-frame display on the footpath.

We have to ensure there is always a continuous, accessible path of travel for pedestrians.

The code regulates all commercial activity on our footpaths balance pedestrian safety and access and the activities of traders.
