JOC Consulting has been commissioned to deliver a Feasibility Study on mobile vending and outdoor markets across the Waverley Local Government Area (LGA). We have teamed up with SGS Economics and Planning to explore the economic impact on brick and mortar businesses, the added value of nighttime markets and recommended volume of food truck operators appropriate for the LGA.
The project required extensive research, analysis, and stakeholder engagement to improve and enhance the variety of hospitality and retail options available to residents. It also considered the key issues, barriers and projected adverse impacts to nearby and already established businesses.
The research undertaken has assisted Council in delivering a streamlined process for the management of mobile vending, outdoor markets and food trucks across the LGA. In addition, it has created a user-friendly set of rules for operators to follow and to ensure safe, efficient and profitable businesses can thrive in the Waverley LGA. The findings will help support the implementation of Waverley Council’s Commercial Activity in Public Spaces Strategy.
