ROADSIDE VENDORS - INFORMATION BULLETIN

Council regulates roadside vendors to ensure these activities are carried out in a safe manner for road users and pedestrians. This activity means the commercial supply of goods or services on a road. Roadside vending can involve travelling from place to place on a road and the waving down of the person operating the roadside vending by a customer (mobile roadside vending) or the activity being established in one place (stationary roadside vending). This approval does not apply to footpath dining activities.

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT & EVENTS MANAGEMENT SERVICES

Barcaldine Regional Council would like to hear your thoughts, opinions and ideas on what we are doing right and how we can improve. As part of this process we will be conducting surveys with members of the community and look forward to your feedback. Council would really appreciate it if you could take a moment to complete the below survey.

THINK SMART, PLANT SMART!

The Barcaldine Regional Council is leading the way by actively participating in the Plant Smart program to help you choose the right plants for planting near powerlines. This ensures that the trees won't grow into powerlines, potentially disrupting the power supply to you and your neighbours and bringing live powerlines to the ground in a storm or windy conditions.
