Application Forms

In order to facilitate economic development during the COVID-19 pandemic, Council have resolved to implement a short term modified outdoor dining program.  This program will be at no additional cost and allows food businesses to apply for a temporary floor space expansion of their existing operations onto adjacent or nearby Town of Cottesloe controlled land.

Please note:

  • Licenses will not be issued to premises located in residential areas if the expansion may impact on residential amenity and;

  • Licenses issued under the short term modified outdoor dining program will expire on 30 September 2020.
