Specific Information

You will find that most Councils in NSW do not require any type of consent/approval/permit for "garage sales". This is the case at our Council and the 3 previous Councils that I have worked for. It would be "political suicide" if we insisted on a Development Application or a Section 68 Application for every garage sale conducted either at weekends or at other times. People would complain to the Councillors and a lot of pressure would be placed on staff if Councils attempted to require approvals for these activities. Therefore, most Councils just turn a "blind eye" to them.

However, if we received a complaint from a member of the community that a particular person was, say, having a "garage sale" every weekend, rather than one or two a year, then Council staff could legitimately investigate the complaint and could require the person to get an approval as it is probably a commercial activity that would require development consent.
