Mobile Food Vendors
Section 222 of the Local Government Act 1999 governed the placement of mobile food vans within every council area in South Australia. Each council was required to produce guidelines which set out the permit, location, and purpose for mobile food vans. Food businesses who wished to make a complaint about these guidelines were able to do so to the Small Business Commissioner.
From 20 September 2021, reforms have been made to the Mobile Food Vendor (food truck) provisions from the Statutes Amendment (Local Government Review) Act 2021. These reforms resulted in the deletion of Section 222 Mobile Food Vendor provisions from the Local Government Act 1999.
Food businesses may still contact the Small Business Commissioner if they have a dispute with local government in relation to other issues they may have in the running of their business.
Businesses wanting to lodge a dispute with the Small Business Commissioner can lodge a written application which can be sent electronically via the Lodge a Dispute Form here, or print the following Application to Lodge a Dispute form -
