Consultation has concluded
Council acknowledges the contribution markets make socially, economically and culturally to the City and the local community. Well managed markets activate and create a vibrancy to the public domain that enhance the economic potential of the area while encouraging local production, distribution and consumption of goods.
The draft Markets Policy provides a framework to guide the approval and operation of markets on land under the care and control of Council. It seeks to facilitate well managed markets that support and contribute to local communities.
The Policy applies to all market operators requesting to operate on land under the care and control of Council and the assessment of these applications.All markets are treated as a special event and are subject to the terms and conditions contained within the Special Events Application form.
This Policy does not apply to markets operated on private land or land outside the care and control of Council.
At the Ordinary meeting of 24 November 2020, Council authorised the public exhibition of the draft Markets Policy and we are now seeking feedback and comments from market operators, exhibitors/stall holders and community members.
This exhibition commenced on Wednesday 25 November 2020 and we will accept submissions to 6pm on Sunday 10 January 2021.
