The NSW Small Business Commissioner is seeking your feedback on fees on outdoor dining, and the position outlined in the papers below.
Since September 2017, our Outdoor Dining Trial has provided outdoor dining permits on a fee-free basis in participating Council areas. We consider that the fee-free arrangements of the trial should be expanded, on an opt-in basis, to form part of the NSW Outdoor Dining Policy to be launched in early 2019.
The concept of ‘fee-free’ is fundamental to the approach taken by Easy to do Business. In our view, adopting the NSW Outdoor Dining Policy will deliver sufficient benefits to Councils through operational efficiencies, and to the community through a more vibrant local economy and sense of place, to warrant providing businesses in participating Councils access to outdoor dining on a fee-free basis.
Please provide your feedback by Friday 23 November 2018 using the below form. Submissions will be published online.
