Below is a list of restrictions and limitations that apply to garage sales in the Bathurst Council area. What you can see is pretty much a copy and paste of the information that was provided to me by the Bathurst Council. I suggest you use this information as a rough guide only and double check to be sure.
In most cases Council has no specific requirements or controls on the operation of garage sales given their transient nature and that they are held for a short period of time.
Council has no rules on the number of garage sales that can be held or controls on when they can be held. Council does not require garage sales to be registered. They can often be advertised by residents in the local paper, but this is not an area with which Council is involved.
Signs can be used to advertise the garage sales as long as they are sympathetic to the locality and neighbourhood. It is generally held that they would only be up for a temporary period of time and taken down once a sale is completed. These signs must not obstruct traffic signs or pose any hazard to pedestrians and motorists.
Signs that are not removed may become litter and person's responsible could be subject to infringement notices. For more information please refer to the unlawful distribution of advertising material on the Environmental Protection Authority's webpage.
The rules on this website may be outdated or wrong. It is your own responsibility to make sure that you adhere to the current rules and regulations that apply to garage sales in your area.
