Goods on Footpath Permit (extension)

We are supporting businesses looking to extend their Goods on Footpath Permit or Liquor Licensing red line. If you have an idea for maximising outdoor dining please let us know.

Our Community Laws team can assist with your application to extend your Goods on Footpath Permit.

If you want to extend your permit beyond your property boundary, talk to your business neighbours then contact us. We will guide and support you through the process.

Our Footpath Trading Procedure can help you complete the Goods on Footpath Application form.

Temporary liquor licence

To temporarily extend your liquor licensing red line you need to submit a planning permit application form to us.

Our Planning team can streamline the planning permit required to extend your red line.

Our fees and requirements for public notice of the application will be waived for the temporary period. This ends when the State of Emergency ends (currently set to end 29 January 2021.

The permit will carry an expiry condition in line with the state of emergency declaration period.

Information requirements

To take part in this program, you need to provide the below information:

A completed planning permit application form:

  • For “owners details” if in public land, please state the relevant public land manager (roads – Council)
  • For private land, include a copy of the certificate of title, including any agreements or restrictions, obtained from the Landata website.

A site/floor plan demonstrating the current red line area (hard red line) and a proposed temporary red line area (dashed red line)

A written statement outlining:

  • Number of patrons that can be accommodated under the restrictions in the existing red line area, and also in the proposed red line area
  • What measures will be taken to ensure service of alcohol will not create additional amenity concerns for neighbouring landowners/occupiers/passing traffic or pedestrians.
  • Any other condition that the business would normally put on alcohol service as a result of current restrictions (ie, guests to remain on premises for no more than 2 hours, alcohol only to be served with food, etc.)

Following the permit's expiry, you need to remove the temporary trading areas.

If you want to keep using the trading area, before the temporary permit expires you need to:

  • apply for a standard planning permit in advance
  • pay the statutory fee and undertake the 14-day public notice period.

If the application applies to public land, your application also needs include consent of the public land manager.
