— The Raleigh City Council voted 6-2 Tuesday to approve new regulations for food trucks.

Under the regulations, which take effect Oct. 1, food truck operators will be allowed to set up on private property in Raleigh as long as they are at least 100 feet from the main entrance or outdoor dining area of any restaurant and at least 50 feet from any food vending cart.

Also, food trucks will be allowed to operate from 6 a.m. to 3 a.m. daily. If they are within 150 feet of the property line of a single-family home or duplex, their operating hours will be limited to 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.

The City Council will review the new rules in six months.
