Apply to hold a market or car boot sale

You will need to apply for a street trading permit, if you want to:

  • hold a market on Council land
  • hold a car boot sale on Council land

You may also need to apply with VicRoads

While we maintain some roads in Casey, some are under the control of VicRoads. If you want to conduct business on a VicRoads controlled road, you must apply with them before you apply for a Council permit.

To check if the street or public place is Council owned, you can:

If you are serving or selling food or alcohol

If your business sells food, you must make sure you have a food business registration. If you are selling or serving alcohol, you must make sure you have a valid liquor licence.

You must have public liability insurance

You must hold public liability insurance with a minimum of $10 million to receive a permit. The permit must be held in the name of the applicant and contain the following clause:

The Permit Holder agrees to indemnify and to keep indemnified, the City of Casey (the Council), its servants and agents, and each of them from and against all actions, costs, claims, charges, expenses, penalties, demands and damages whatsoever which may be brought or made or claimed against them, or any of them, in connection with the Permit Holder's performance or purported performance of its obligations under this Permit and be directly related to the negligent acts, errors or omission of the Permit Holder. The Permit Holder's liability to indemnify the Council shall be reduced proportionally to the extent that an act of omission of the Council, its servants or agents, contributed to the loss or liability.

Application fee

There is a $115 non-refundable application fee for each application.
