Business COVID-19 support

Financial support & business information during COVID-19

We're here to help businesses. See what support is available from tax relief to financial support packages and more.


COVID-19 Safety Plans help to protect your staff, customers and visitors as you get back to business. Some businesses will need to complete a COVID-19 Safety Plan under the public health orders, but you can also voluntarily complete one.

How to become a COVID Safe business


What we're doing

At the Council meeting held on Tuesday 25 March, we endorsed a $2.3 million COVID-19 community support package. Details of the packaged included waiving a range of Council fees for businesses including:

  • fire safety inspection fees;
  • environmental health inspection fees;
  • outdoor dining and footpath fees (note: information on extending footway dining areas can be found here);
  • Development Application fees for small businesses (other than Plan First fees);
  • Local Approval Application fees for footway trading associated with small businesses;
  • sporting field hire for local sporting groups;
  • waiving interest on all overdue rates and charges for the next six months; and
  • up to 100% rental relief for Council business tenants and not-for-profit community groups in Council-owned properties.

Other details include providing temporary parking for hospital workers. Further information can be read here.

Randwick City Council is also assisting local cafes and restaurants affected by COVID-19 by allowing the temporary extension of footway dining areas beyond their defined location to comply with the social distancing rules. Further information can be read here.
