Night Time Economy and Footway Dining

In This Section


Woollahra Council is working to support a night time economy that is vibrant, safe and sustainable – and that meets the diverse needs and aspirations of our community. We are also updating our footway dining policies and guidelines to ensure they promote best practice and we invite your comment.

Council has prepared a number of draft documents that will guide and manage our night time economy and footway dining.  These include Draft Development Control Plan – Amendment 8 to amend Woollahra Development Control Plan 2015

Your participation is essential in helping to shape Council’s night time economy and footway dining policies to ensure they reflect the views of our whole community.
