Napier City Council has a policy to cover mobile concessions sought for popular public reserves such as the Marine Parade coastal strip and Anderson Park.
Most applications for setting up such businesses are handled by the Reserves Asset Manager, who urges operators survey market needs as a first step. Many back out, when they find there is not the anticipated demand.
The council's policy covers two situations - a licence to occupy reserve land or, if the applicant stands to make a financial gain, a formal lease agreement.
The council's registered valuer determines site rentals.
To protect Napier's high profile Art Deco heritage quarter, the area of Marine Parade that is available for concession operators is limited to between the children's playground south to the Ellison Street car park.
Businesses must complement the professional and unique landscape character of the reserve. The environmental impact should be minimal, and there should be no restriction on public access or enjoyment.
The foreshore reserve is the coastal strip between State Highway 2 and the sea.
Circuses and mardi gras pay a daily rental set under the council's regime for fees and charges.
