Wyndham City supports the conduct of footpath activity associated with established businesses throughout shopping centres and other business activity areas. This activity adds to the vibrancy, diversity and cosmopolitan nature of our City and its streetscapes. Such activity brings economic benefits to individual traders and the City. It encourages and attracts shoppers, tourists, visitors and increases social interaction within our community.
Wyndham City recognises that a form of control over footpath activities needs to be in place to achieve equity in the treatment of business proprietors and to ensure that footpaths, irrespective of the activities permitted on them, are community and not individual assets. We also recognises that adequate controls need to be established and enforced to ensure that public safety and disability access are not compromised and that pedestrians can move freely along the footpath.
