Mobile food vending vehicles local approvals policy

Mobile food vending vehicles local approvals policy


Following community consultation, Council approved the amendment to the mobile food vending vehicles policy.

View the changes

The mobile food vending vehicles local approvals policy outlines the approval process for food trucks and vans. It also details where they can trade and operational requirements.

The updated policy amends the requirement for trucks to use the Sydney Food Trucks app and for their details to be included on the website. The app and website are now available to approved food trucks and vans through a third party.

We invite your feedback on our updated policy to manage food trucks and vans trading on City-owned roads and other public places.

All feedback will be considered and we’ll report the results to Council.

You can view the policy and give your feedback by completing our online form by 5pm on Friday 8 March 2019.
