View the Council Report, Item 13.5, Pg 192
The purpose of the draft Outdoor Dining and Footpath Merchandise Policy is to provide structure for consistency and transparency in the application and assessment process as well as providing effective guidelines for compliance and enforcement of approvals. The Outdoor Dining and Footpath Merchandise Policy is supported by the Outdoor Dining and Footpath Merchandise Guide. Whilst the Council is required to formally adopt any new Policy the Guide may be updated from time to time as necessary.
Once adopted the draft policy would replace the Outdoor Dining and Footpath Merchandise Policies of the three former Councils, thus supporting a single approach to the assessment and regulation of Outdoor Dining and Footpath Merchandise approvals. The draft policy has no governance over outdoor dining fees and charges which are determined as part of the annual review of fees and charges.
View the draft policy and guide below.
