Removing Red Tape for Businesses

Removal of Footpath Trading Fees – Business Use of a Road

City of Prospect is committed to simplifying the Footpath Trading process for local businesses, encouraging outdoor trading and activation, and increasing footfall.

On 28 March 2017, Council endorsed an introductory four year license with the first two years effectively free and the second two years each at $100.00 (inclusive of GST). Therefore businesses will adopt a four year Footpath Trading Fee term to the value of $200.

There is a wider desire to see this removed altogether so this will continue to be addressed in the future, in order to improve the procedure for small business owners.
