Council has recently undertaken a Footpath Trading audit of the Cowra CBD. A letter was sent to shop owners/business with existing signs and outdoor furniture advising them that they are required to lodge an application for a Footpath Trading Permit.
Council recognises the importance of having a vibrant and active main street and has resolved to waive the application fee for businesses who apply for the permit before Monday 24 February 2020. The annual fee for the permit will also be waived for the first year or until 2021.
The Footpath Trading Permit will enable business owners to provide alfresco dining, or the opportunity to promote their business through signage or furniture placed on the footpath outside their shopfront.

There was a delay to the western end of Kendal Street over the Christmas break due to the discovery of two petrol tanks on the road reserve that date back to the 1920’s. It required the site to be closed so that environmental consultants and SafeWork NSW could assess the tanks and drain the 4,400 litres fuel and water mixture. Testing of the surrounding subsoil was also undertaken. Read more.
A summary of decisions from the January 2020 Council Meeting is now available here.
