Mobile food vehicles

A permit is required to place a mobile food vehicle in or within any street, vacant land, public place or land. 

The Mobile Food Vehicle (MFV) Policy has been developed to support the operations of MFVs within the municipality and to provide a framework for both Council staff and mobile food vehicle operators in regards to obtaining a permit for operation as well as the ongoing management of sites.
