Many residents and businesses are faced with the additional strain of the financial pressure that comes with lockdown.

Randwick Council has released a support package aimed at supporting the community and local businesses over the coming months as the Sydney lockdown continues, Randwick Mayor Danny Said announced today.

“In addition to the uncertainty of how long this lockdown will go for, many of our residents and businesses are faced with the additional strain of the financial pressures that come with it,” Mayor Said explained. “Council has looked for immediate and meaningful ways to offer support to the community and local businesses and identified a range of support mechanisms that will assist them in this difficult time.”

Council will waive a range of fees and charges to help alleviate the financial strain faced by many residents and local businesses. This includes:

In addition, Council will offer a 100% rental rebate to Council tenants that have been required to close due to the lockdown and 50% rental rebate to tenants that have remained open but suffered a loss of turnover due to the lockdown.

“For the remainder of the lockdown period Council will also continue working with Addi Road Community Centre to distribute around 200 food hampers per week to families in need,” Mayor Said continued.

“We know that this pandemic has increased food insecurity for many of our residents and we’re committed to working with service providers across our city to help alleviate this problem. Two recipients of our Community Partnerships Funding Program, which was announced at last night’s Council meeting, will deal specifically with food relief for families.”

Council last night endorsed the allocation of nearly $120,000 in community grants to eight not-for-profit organisations. More information here.
