We're seeking feedback on changes to our Footpath Dining Policy.
The proposed changes would see businesses charged for the amount of footpath they use, rather than for each chair.
This is the approach the NSW Government uses when issuing COVID-19 public health orders regarding dining capacities.
It is also the system used by many other councils.
The area-based system is simpler and more equitable for businesses, and easier for Council to administer.
Operators will be responsible for the placement, spacing and number of tables and chairs in their ‘rental’ area.
Submissions must be made by 4.00pm on Friday 27 November 2020.
