Parklet Trial Program has been launched
Following more than $7.9 million in local business support measures released last year, Woollahra Municipal Council approved additional initiatives to help ease the economic burden of the pandemic.
In recognition of the fact that physical distancing requirements are likely to dramatically reduce the amount of patrons that hospitality businesses can typically accommodate in dining areas, Council has introduced a parklet trial program. This program enables any hospitality business with an existing footway dining approval to apply to use a kerbside parking space for additional outdoor dining. Find out more information about the parklet trial program.
