Specific Information

Council does not have a policy on "garage sales" from a private residence. Therefore development approval is not necessary to undertake occasional "garage sales" in residential zones.

Notwithstanding that an approval is not required, the following information is considered important in the undertaking of a "garage sale":

Place discreet signs to attract people to the premises. Signs are not to interfere with traffic safety signs. Remove the signs at the conclusion of the sale.

Consider the amenity of others in the street by ensuring that customers do not park across driveways.

All goods for sale to be placed wholly within the residential allotment.

No dangerous goods, rubbish, chemicals etc to be included in the sale items.

Note that this response does not include the sale of second hand goods from zones other than residential zonings. You may need to discuss with Council if you intend to hold a "garage sale" in commercial or industrial (or similar) zones.
