Mobile Food Trader Guidelines

The City of Belmont has developed Draft Mobile Food Trader Guidelines to guide the location, operation and regulation of mobile food vehicles (e.g. food trucks) within our local government area.

These draft guidelines have been informed from the findings of the community survey following cessation of the Roadside Eats at Belmont food truck trial from November 2017 to January 2018.

The draft guidelines nominate a number of public open spaces (designated trading areas) around the City where approved Permit Holders will be able to trade. The draft policy aims to achieve the following objectives:

  • Provide guidance on the requirements for the operation of Mobile Food Vehicles within the City of Belmont;
  • Encourage Mobile Food Vehicles to operate in locations which support the activation of public spaces;
  • Ensure Mobile Food Vehicles operate in a way which complements existing food businesses in commercial areas;
  • Ensure Mobile Food Vehicles do not unreasonably compromise the amenity of the surrounding residential area;
  • Ensure Mobile Food Vehicles are of a temporary nature in line with the permitted trading times for each location;
  • Ensure Mobile Food Traders practice safe food handling in accordance with the Food Act 2008.

The City of Belmont invites comments from the business community and other stakeholders here.

The comment period opens Tuesday 18 September until Monday 8 October 2018.
