Only food businesses can apply for a Footpath Dining permit. Most food businesses are required to hold a food licence. However some food businesses, such as coffee shops that sell only drinks and package foods, are not required to hold a food licence but can still apply for a footpath dining permit.
If you are unsure on whether you need a food licence, please refer to Food Licences or contact Council's Licensing and Approvals branch on telephone 1300 69 22 47.
