Temporary footpath advertising

On Tuesday 14 February 2017 it was resolved that Port Stephens Council rescind all fees and charges relating to Outdoor Dining Licences, however Businesses still require Council approval.

Temporary structures are a welcome addition to any business and are a great way to advertise daily specials or just to let people know you're open. A temporary structure includes:  A-frame sandwich boards, clothing racks or displaying items for sale outside your business.

Did you know approval must be obtained from Council to place a temporary structure on the footpath as this is Council land? (This application excludes tables and chairs, please see – Footway dining).

The use of temporary structures on the footway provides commercial retailers with an opportunity to integrate commercial activities into the pedestrian area. This will increase exposure of specific commercial activities which gives the opportunity for increasing business.

A Temporary Structure Application Form must be submitted to Council with the required supporting documentation to ensure safety requirements are met and regulate the impact on pedestrians and road-users in order to keep businesses and their patrons safe.

Once your application is approved by our Civil Assets Engineer, a licence sticker will be issued for Council Rangers to identify temporary structure approval.

Alternatively contact Council to discuss this further.
