Outdoor dining

Local food and drink businesses with street frontage can apply for an Outdoor Dining Permit. To ensure adequate pedestrian access at all times, some restrictions are necessary.

Some basic guidelines are:

  • footpaths must be a minimum of 3.2m wide and may not be in a bus zone,
  • new or redesigned outdoor dining areas are to be achieved with fully removable infrastructure,
  • in some instances, energy absorbing bollards may be required,
  • there are set distances required from boundaries/kerbs and infrastructure that may be in the area.

Please fill out this form for an Outdoor Dining permit and send to Council's email -
