Outdoor dining and footpath trading

The City of Onkaparinga offers excellent opportunities for outdoor dining and footpath trading in terms of its climate, picturesque townships, scenic views and the variety of lively mainstreets and town centres.

Council recognises the vibrancy that outdoor dining and footpath trading can promote within and area and is supportive of businesses wishing to create active street frontages by offering either outdoor dining or footpath trading.

Support for local businesses

As part of the City-Wide Place & Business Activation Plan, council is waiving all outdoor dining and footpath trading permit fees for the first 12 months for new applications in 2018. Council may be able to assist with subsidising the cost of installing bollards and undertaking traffic assessments where there is sufficient need as part of the outdoor dining offering. To be eligible, businesses must be members of the ON Business Partner Program.

The ON Business Partner Program is an initiative that aims to support businesses of all sizes to thrive and grow and to enjoy the benefits of partnership and collaboration. View the website to see the many ways in which council can support your business: www.onbusinesspartnerprogram.com

Apply for a permit

If you would like your customers to dine outside on land owned by council or if you are a retail business wanting to display goods for sale on the footpath or land owned by council, you will need a permit.

To make the process of obtaining a permit easier, council has pre-assessed mainstreet areas within the city and have identified locations where outdoor dining and footpath trading is possible without requiring a traffic assessment.
