Mobile Food Vendors and Temporary Food Stalls
Port Macquarie-Hastings Council has adopted Local Approvals Policy - Mobile Food Vending Vehicles and Temporary Food Stalls in a Public Place to establish the criteria that will be used in considering applications to operate mobile food vending vehicles and temporary food stalls.
The policy will also assist anyone who wishes to make an application for approval to operate mobile food vending vehicles and temporary food stalls. The policy sets out the information required by Council to assess applications.
The aims of the policy are:
- to ensure that, in a public place, food sold to the public from mobile food vending vehicles and temporary food stalls, is safe for human consumption and that the construction, fitting out and facilities for cleaning utensils, articles, hands, fittings and appliances in vehicles and stalls are adequate
- to ensure that trading when undertaken in areas does not place the public at risk, and
- to ensure that trading complements and does not compete with commercial centres.
