Flexibility on alfresco reaping rewards as businesses respond
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.
