Commercial use of footpaths

The use of footpaths for commercial purposes helps create a vibrant atmosphere in the city. However, a footpath primarily remains a place on which pedestrians can walk.

We are committed to supporting and enhancing local business and an active street life.

The use of footpaths for commercial purposes helps create a vibrant atmosphere in the city. However, a footpath primarily remains a place on which pedestrians can walk.

We have developed the Commercial Use of Footpaths Policy to:

  • Allow businesses to use footpath space
  • Ensure that pedestrians of all abilities have safe and unobstructed passage
  • Ensure the visual amenity of our street-scapes is maintained

It is important to acknowledge that any commercial use of the public space is a privilege, not a right.

How to apply

If you would like to apply to use the footpath outside your premises for commercial reasons, please fill out the application form and return it to us.

If you have any questions, please contact Customer Services on 03 477 4000.
