You will need a permit to undertake an activity that excludes some, or all, members of the public from using the land. This permit authorises you to use stated public unleased land at a specified time for a specified activity. Public unleased land is unleased territory land that:
- the public is entitled to use
- is open to, or used by, the public.
Activities that will need to be permitted include:
- carrying on business as a hawker
- placing tables and chairs on the footpath outside a cafe for outdoor dining
- placing a construction skip on a footpath
- placing a charity collection bin on a footpath
- holding markets on unleased land
- holding a wedding in a park
- holding a concert in a park
- parking a car in a park.
A hawker is someone who operates an itinerant business selling goods or services in a public place. Please be aware that your permit may be subject to conditions (for example, a financial assurance condition may be imposed if the activity will cause serious of material damage to the land).
