Do you intend to sell or offer goods or services from temporary locations or place to place?

Itinerant (roaming) trading, otherwise known as Street Trading falls under the City’s Community Local Law which sets out a number of requirements for conducting itinerant trading.

Examples of itinerant trading might include;

  • Sale of products from a method of transport (e.g. mobile food vans)
  • Sale of fundraising products (e.g. from an authorised charity or welfare organisation)

If you would like to conduct itinerant trading within the City, please complete our license agreement to trade in a public place and provide the following information –

  • Where you wish to trade from for the day - for example, Bendigo Pall Mall
  • What you wish to do whilst there
  • The time and date of trade
  • Contact details
  • A signature from the owner of the land where trading will occur (if applicable)

Applicants will also require a current Certificate of Currency for Public Liability Insurance for a minimum of $10 million, (specifically covering the area to be occupied for street trading and indemnifying the City of Greater Bendigo against all claims).

A permit fee is applicable and listed on the application form (updated each financial year).

Permit fees vary depending on the length of trade. Traders can obtain permits to trade at day events, or can opt to pay a fee per month. To obtain an accurate cost for your permit, contact the Local Laws unit or email [email protected]
