Street stall sites available

Nelson City Council has one street stall site available for letting. This is an exciting opportunity for entrepreneurs who would like to add to the vibrancy of the city centre and go into business.

The site is on Trafalgar Street (outside Westpac) with an annual rental of $3,654.52 (+GST)

The term of the lease will be until 30 June 2021 with no rights of renewal.

A copy of the Licence to Occupy agreement will be provided on request. Council suggests that you make yourself familiar with all of the conditions in the Licence. A template is included here (48KB PDF) so you know what to expect.

An administration fee of $200 plus GST is also payable when the Licence to Occupy is signed.

Your application must be accompanied by the equivalent of two months rent plus GST. This will be refunded if you are unsuccessful.

The maximum area permitted to be occupied at either site will be 4m2.
