Outdoor dining update

Published on 06 October 2020


Council is working on finalising its outdoor dining permit process as quickly as possible to support food businesses with their reopening preparations. We are expecting it to be live and ready for your applications through our website later this week. 

Our temporary outdoor dining permit will not attract any fees and will be streamlined to have a fast turnaround time for assessment.  Anyone with an existing Footpath Trading Permit will be able to recommence Footpath Trading in the trading zone that has been approved as soon as restrictions allow

In the meantime, please view our Business Reopening page which contains a temporary outdoor dining checklist and FAQ's.

If you are proposing to run outdoor dining on owners corporation or private land, Council consent may be required.

Please contact our Planning team for more information on 9294 6829.

Council officers have reached out to 130 food businesses to find out how Council can help you reopen.  If you have not yet been contacted please register your interest or contact our Economic Development team on 1300 368 333.
