About the Policy

The purpose of this Policy is to provide the framework for the operation of mobile food vending vehicles within the Strathfield Council Local Government Area.

The objectives of this policy are to:

  • Ensure that food sold through mobile food vending vehicles are safe and fit for human consumption;
  • Ensure the safe operation of mobile food vending vehicles for staff, patrons, pedestrians and the general public;
  • Ensure compliance with the Food Act 2003 with regards to business registration and vehicle fit-out;
  • Minimise any potential negative impacts such as waste, noise, or impact on other businesses and residents;
  • Ensure mobile food vending vehicles operate in accordance with the road rules and kerbside parking restrictions on Council-owned roads.
