Street Trading

Street trading has gained popularity in Dubbo particularly since the inception of the Macquarie Street Beautification and is generally well supported by the community.

The Policy is designed to encourage street trading but acknowledges that in a business competitive environment, street trading must be regulated for equity and fairness to business proprietors.

Importantly, it is also necessary for protecting the rights of pedestrians and disabled persons to a reasonably safe and clear passageway on footpaths. 

The question of equity is addressed by the consistent enforcement of compliance with conditions of approval and the application of a reasonable fee on those conducting street trading as part of a business. 

The protection of pedestrians is addressed through the consideration of risk management issues with respect to the placement, design and maintenance of street furniture and fixtures.
