How much will it cost?

When your application is approved, you will need to pay a fee before the permit is issued.

When public land is used for commercial purposes, rental fees are charged. The use of public land in this way impacts upon other businesses and users of the land. The area to be occupied affects the calculation of fees. The fees are determined annually and are based on the location and the area that you require.

Fees are payable once the determination has been made as to the area that will be permitted as the size will change the fees payable.
