Small Business Support Resolution

Consultation closed on 28 April 2020

Council is proposing to implement measures to support small business in addition to the support and stimulus packages being offered by the Federal and NSW Governments.

Council is considering a suite of financial support measures including:

  • Waiving fees payable for Outdoor Dining – Cafes and Restaurants (in view of the restrictions placed on these operations)
  • Waiving certain fees and charges (such as inspection fees) - Cafes and Restaurants (in view of the restrictions placed on these operations)
  • Commercial tenants – Cafes and Restaurants in Council premises  – rent deferral (after discussions with tenants and consideration on a case-by-case basis)
  • Other Small Business initiatives – waiving certain certification fees; waiving filming application fees; consideration of rent deferral for Council tenants

It must be noted that the Federal Government is putting in place a number of measures to assist small business and leaseholders – and that circumstances are subject to rapid change.

Once the exhibition period has closed, a report will go back to Council to determine if these initiatives will go ahead.
