Draft Markets Policy

Consultation has concluded

A range of public markets are held on a regular and ad-hoc basis in the Port Macquarie-Hastings Local Government Area and, like most areas, in recent years there has been a rise in the popularity and number of markets.

We want to ensure Council can facilitate well-managed markets and have developed a Draft Markets Policy to gain your feedback. We’ve provided the Draft Policy in the Document Library and frequently asked questions (FAQ’s) as background (refer to the right of this screen).

If you are a community member, market stallholder, coordinator or local business we’re keen to hear your views on the Draft Policy including:

  • the impact of markets on our public places;

  • the impact of markets on the local economy and surrounding businesses;

  • the types of goods/services at markets; and

  • how many and how often we should have markets locally.

To share your views, complete the Survey under the Submission tab below. Further details may be obtained by contacting Ross Smith on 6581 8111.

Submissions close on Sunday 21 October, 2018.
