Draft Council Policies

Council amends its Policies from time to time. Council is required to seek community input to the proposed changes through a public exhibition period. New, or changes to, Council Policies will be included as part of this section. You are invited to inspect the draft Policies and you may wish to make a submission in writing to Bathurst Regional Council. Any submission objecting to any draft Policy must clearly state the reasons for objection. Council will exhibit the proposed amendment for a period of 28 days.

The lodging of a submission is voluntary. However, if you choose not to lodge a submission/objection in writing, your views will not be taken into account by the Council in relation to this matter. Any information that you choose to provide to Council will be used by Council to process this matter. Once lodged with Council the information you provide can be accessed by you and may also be available to third parties including other members of the public and may be included, without alteration (including names and addresses), in Council business papers.

Footpath Restaurant Policy

Council is seeking feedback on the Footpath Restaurant Policy draft amendment. Following representations made to Council in regard to footpath restaurant encroachment into pedestrian areas, and given the last review was in 2010, some amendments are proposed to Council's Footpath Restaurants Policy. The proposed changes include a standardisation of the unobstructed width for pedestrian access to 2m across the CBD, and guidance on calculating the unobstructed width. The proposed changes continue to encourage outdoor dining as an important aspect of activation of the town centre and creating additional customer attraction for hospitality businesses, whilst preserving reasonable pedestrian access. Council encourages all interested parties to provide feedback on the draft changes.
