The Mobile Food Vending Vehicles Policy (Policy) provides the framework for the operation of mobile food vending vehicles on Council-owned roads within the Canterbury Bankstown Local Government Area (LGA). The Policy aims to ensure that mobile food vending vehicles operate in accordance with relevant legislative instruments and best practice in all aspects of food safety.
