Flex­i­bil­ity on al­fresco reap­ing re­wards as busi­nesses re­spond

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

ALL SUBIACO busi­nesses that re­cently signed up for sub­sidised and short-term al­fresco dining per­mits have now ap­plied for a full an­nual li­cence with the City of Subiaco.

That Café on Hay, 541 Foyer Café and Tenkadori chose the $25 fes­tive sea­son per­mit from De­cem­ber 1 to Jan­uary 31, while Menchies, Jesters, Mu­rano, Floyd’s and Cafe Mel­o­grano tri­alled al­fresco dining for a three­month pe­riod.

Mayor Heather Hen­der­son said the suc­cess of the ini­tia­tive so far was very en­cour­ag­ing for the fu­ture of Subiaco.

“Lower fees and more flex­i­bil­ity are ex­cel­lent ways the City can help sup­port a di­verse and ex­cit­ing mix of places in the Subiaco town cen­tre and I com­mend my fel­low coun­cil­lors for sup­port­ing the in­tro­duc­tion of th­ese pos­i­tive changes late last year,” Mrs Hen­der­son said.

The City is­sued Bistro Felix with a pro­vi­sional al­fresco li­cence last week, al­most 18 months since the Subiaco Coun­cil ap­proved plans for the own­ers to build a tim­ber deck for 25 din­ers out­side the Rokeby Road restau­rant.
