Mobile Food Vans Permit

Council is committed to supporting local businesses in its many forms by activating street life and permitting public space activities that provide unique experiences and opportunities for residents and visitors alike.

Mobile food vans play an important role in creating vibrancy and activity by providing an efficient, high quality and accessible food service for the local community.

Due to the continued popularity of Yarraville Gardens as a food van hub, the number of dedicated spaces available has increased and are subject to payment of a permit fee.
