Mobile Food Vendors

New rules come into effect this month governing the placement of mobile food vans in every council area in South Australia.

Under changes passed by Parliament last year, each council is required to produce guidelines which set out the permit and location purpose for mobile food vans.

Food businesses who wish to make a complaint about the rules may do so to the Small Business Commissioner. In the first instance efforts will be made to resolve any dispute with discussions between the parties, which may include other food businesses and the local council.

Should that fail, the Small Business Commissioner will follow the dispute resolution procedures which have been set out under the Local Government Act 1999.

The written application may be sent electronically via the Lodge a Dispute Form here, or print the following Application to Lodge a Dispute form -
