What if I have already have a liscence agreement in place with Council for footpath use?
Prior to 1 July 2018, businesses wanting to use the footpath for trade had to first complete different paper forms and submit to Council in person and pay associated fees. The new online registration replaces this process; which means all businesses within the LGA need to register to transition to the online system. It's easier than ever to register to use the footpath for FREE!
How do I claim my refund for footpath use?
What do I need to do to use my footpath for free?
1. Register online with Trading Places
2. Ensure you have current adequate public liability insurance
3. Agree to and comply with the Trading Places groundrules; ensuring public safety, access and passage at all times
What rules do I need to follow?
Council reserves the right to withdraw a registration at any time for misuse of footpath space or non-compliance – there are still rules and guidelines in place
How do I register and book to busk?
Buskers and street performers still need to register online to be eligible to busk in the Coffs Local Government Area. There are designated spaces in the CBD, Woolgoolga and Sawtell which can be booked by buskers once they have registered online. Once you register online, you will be sent a link to access the booking calendar so you can manage your own bookings.
Can I use the footpath to fundraise for my community group?
