The Mobile Food Traders Code of Practice has been endorsed by Council.

Thank you to everyone who shared their feedback on Swan Hill Rural City Council's draft Mobile Food Traders Code of Practice.

We are currently reviewing this feedback which will help shape the updated draft Mobile Food Trading Code of Practice.

The Mobile Food Trading Code of Practice aims to create a balance between fixed businesses and the mobile food vendors by setting limits on available trade hours and locations that mobile food vendors can trade on public land.

In developing the Code of Practice, officers have taken into consideration the following:

  • Fairness to other fixed businesses with higher associated costs
  • Activating the public spaces including local parks and lakesides
  • Food availability for tourists and community during busy periods
  • Allowing opportunities for new business growth
