To operate a mobile shop, hawk or set up a stall in a public place in the Whangārei District, you will need to apply for a licence.
- A mobile shop operates for short periods in one location before moving on, e.g. an ice cream van.
- A hawker offers goods for sale, sometimes on foot, without prior invitation to visit that private or public place.
- A stall is a specific location where a business is set up for more than 30 minutes e.g. on the roadside.
You may also need to register as a food business if you intend to sell food. Please see our Food Registration information on the following page.
