From 1 July 2019, a new outdoor trading fee structure will be introduced, with reduced rates for each of our Placemaking precincts, which aims at boosting the vibrancy and atmosphere of Port Phillip’s street-life.

  • Seasonal dining options are available to further reduce costs.
  • Planter boxes are now free. You only pay the application fee and a renewal fee in future years of having a permit for your planter box.
  • For the 2019/20 financial year the annual renewal fee of footpath trading permits has been reduced by 42% to $70.00.

The reductions to the renewal fee is for everyone, including A-board and display of goods.
