Street Activities Policy

Maroondah has a diverse range of strip shopping centres and business precincts; this diversity means different activities may occur at different centres and locations. Activities on the street are an integral part of Maroondah’s unique character. 

The Street Activities Policy explains when and how to trade on Council land and the types of activities permitted. The Policy has been developed to maintain the balance between commercial and fundraising activities and ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience on Maroondah’s streets and in the commercial precincts.

Council will respond to the changing needs of the community and traders to maintain this balance. The Policy was developed by Council in consultation with the local community to provide a framework for the sustainable use and management of Council land and the activities that may occur on our streets and in our commercial precincts. Council aims to provide a clear and unobstructed access for all people to move through Maroondah.

The policy is not intended to include Council or Trader Association sanctioned events such as festivals, markets or fairs. Council’s Events Policy will apply to these activities.
