Section 56C of the Vehicle and Traffic Act 1999 prohibits the setting up or use of a stall, stand or vehicle on a public street for the purposes of the sale of goods, or of a business, calling or employment without a permit.

Street stall permits are issued by the general manager of the relevant local council subject to consultation with Tasmania Police in regards to traffic and public safety issues. Application forms may be sought through the relevant local council.

For a list of local government contacts, visit the Local Government website.

Event dependent, a twelve-week lead time is required to ensure your permit is approved in a timely fashion. Please contact the relevant office should your event fall outside of this time frame.
