COVID-19 Fee Relief

Please note: fee relief as part of the COVID-19 Community Care and Recovery Package has now closed. 

The Council will provide fee relief to aid in the recovery of individuals and businesses and to provide a stimulus for economic growth in the short term.

Fee relief such as for Food Business Registrations, public health risk activities, on-street dining, Food vendors (mobile vans) will assist businesses to commence trading after the emergency, while fee relief for venue and ground hire will assist community and sporting groups to re-commence their operations.

Further, Council will waive the commission it receives from accommodation and tour bookings made through the Visitor Information Centre to further ease the burden on this sector's recovery.

The Council will also wave the minimum Development Application fee for six months.
