Trading in public places

Trading and events in our public spaces keep our city vibrant, diverse, and inspiring.

We want to make Wellington a great place to, live, work and play. Our markets, outdoor dining, busking, food trucks and events all play an important part in making our public spaces vibrant and fun.

Our Trading and Events in Public Places Policy ensures that trading and events in our public spaces:

  • encourage a vibrant, diverse, cultural city, where people can be active
  • maintain standards of public health and safety and accessibility to footpaths and thoroughfares
  • protect our culture, heritage and natural environments
  • minimise the effects on private property and businesses.
