We worked with our local restaurants, cafes and bars to fast track applications to set up outdoor areas so as to continue trading when COVID-19 restrictions eased from October 2021.
This applied to businesses that already had footpath trading in place but wanted to extend seating and dining to neighbouring properties, and also to where businesses wanted to utilise laneways and streets for outdoor dining.
This program of outdoor dining is a State Government initiative that is supported by Council. For more information on the initiative visit:
