Temporary Permits for Outdoor Dining

Council has been speaking with cafés and small businesses in our LGA and understand many have been struggling during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We have listened to your concerns and, to assist with recovery, we are offering free use of public areas, adjacent to existing businesses, for outdoor dining until 30 January 2022. This will help our small businesses get back on their feet and enhance the vibrancy of our local area during the warmer months.

When assessing permit applications, we will need to consider how the public space is currently used, as well as pedestrian access and safety.

If you have open space that you could use, you are invited to express interest by completing this application form
