Trading and Events in Public Places Bylaw 2015

This bylaw allows us to manage commercial activities and events that use public places in a way that is fair and consistent.

You should know

We have reviewed this bylaw and are proposing a new Auckland Council Public Trading, Events and Filming Bylaw 2022 to meet the needs of Aucklanders, now and in the future.
 
Find out what we are proposing and provide feedback at akhaveyoursay.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz.
 
We will review public feedback and let you know of the outcome.

What the Trading and Events in Public Places Bylaw does

Both Auckland Council and Auckland Transport have bylaws that regulate trading, event and filming activities in public places.

The bylaws cover:

  • markets and stalls
  • mobile shops
  • outdoor dining
  • fundraising
  • offering commercial services
  • distributing promotional material or goods
  • outdoor displays
  • street performances and pavement artists
  • filming
  • events.
