There was an increased demand for outdoor dining options during the pandemic, with food businesses operating under new social distancing requirements.
But beyond this, outdoor dining allows restaurants, cafes and other food businesses to use part of the footpath outside of their business to expand their trading area. Outdoor dining helps to activate streets, brings business opportunities and creates places where people can linger longer.
As part of our recovery strategy, we are activating local precincts in Port Adelaide, Semaphore and Exeter. To enhance these popular public destinations we are installing safety bollards, street furniture and landscaping.
