Opportunities for businesses during COVID

Outdoor Dining

The upcoming weeks and months will be some of the most challenging times of the pandemic that we have seen in WA.

The City will try its best to support these businesses wherever possible, starting with a relaxation of the alfresco dining rules. Some customers will feel safer dining outdoors.
If you are a business and wishing to participate in COVID-safe outdoor dining please follow the link to register.
