  • fire safety inspection fees;
  • environmental health inspection fees;
  • outdoor dining and footpath fees;
  • 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.
