About the Draft Policy

Council is committed to supporting local businesses, fostering community engagement, and creating vibrant public spaces. In line with this commitment, the proposed Draft Policy has been developed to provide a framework for the establishment and operation of markets on Council owned land.


The Markets Over Council Owned and Managed Land Policy provides clear guidelines on the approval and management of markets. It aims to contribute to market operations that support local businesses and the creation of vibrant community spaces, and add value to the economy.

We place important documents on public exhibition to allow members of the public to provide their feedback and have their say.
