Alfresco Dining and Street Trader Policy Review

Published on 09 March 2018


Following input from community consultation undertaken last year, Mildura Rural City Council has finalised its review of both the Alfresco Dining and Street Trader Policies.  Both policies have been combined into one as the Footpath Trading Policy and the draft document is now available for public comment from Friday 9 March 2018 to Friday 6 April 2018.

Responses from the two previous rounds of consultation and engagement sessions have been gathered, considered, evaluated and compiled. Some of the major changes include:

  • A new policy objective to “encourage new forms of trading which activates public spaces”.
  • More temporary food vans permitted
  • Placemaking items to be located in trading areas
  • Enforcement and application process clarified
  • Temporary/removable structures preferred
  • Clearer intersection set backs
  • Guidance for locations of items with Langtree Mall.

If you wish to gain a further understanding of the draft policy, you are invited to attend one of the public drop-in sessions to be held in March.
