Temporary Outdoor Dining
To help local business reopen effectively while meeting the State Government operating requirements, Council provided alternative outdoor dining options, including temporary car park dining. This has enabled businesses to expand their outdoor dining options into car spaces and laneways adjacent to their business.
The temporary car park dining program is coming to an end, with no new applications for temporary car park dining being accepted. All current permit holders will have their permits extended until 30th June 2022, at which point the project is intended to end and all temporary car park dining infrastructure will need to be packed up and car parks re-established as parking.
Any businesses intending to extend outdoor dining on footpaths would be required to apply for a footpath trading permit. Footpath trading permits will be complimentary until 31st December 2022.
