Welcome to the City of Subiaco's monthly business e-newsletter. Keep up to date with the latest business news on the City of Subiaco website.

See Subiaco anew in 2016
Repositioning the Subiaco Town Centre as a unique and exciting destination is a high priority for both the community and the city and in 2016, the city is proud to launch the refreshed town centre branding See Subiaco.

With a focus on promoting Subiaco as a great place to live, work and visit the new brand has been developed from direct engagement with the workers, visitors and residents treading the pavement in the town centre. The new branding is the city's first step in working with the community to form a fresh and authentic identity for the town centre, celebrating the character and promoting the vibrancy and future direction of Subiaco.

The transition to the new branding has commenced and as a result the former Visit Subiaco Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and website will be unavailable to access until the launch of See Subiaco at the end of next week.

A business alert communicating how your business can connect with the new brand will be sent after the launch. For more information or to share upcoming events and promotions for your business contact the city’s place development team at

Forrest Square car park upgrade project
Works on Forrest Square car park are currently underway with the aim of upgrading the facility and enhancing the aesthetics, while retaining all trees on site. 
The city is committed to the revitalisation of Subiaco Town Centre by providing opportunity for vibrancy and events and the works will upgrade the car park into a multi-use space that can be used as a car park or a town square.
The works will be staged in two sections to allow as much public parking as possible. The entire works are expected to be completed by mid-April, subject to weather conditions and other work constraints.
For more information about the works and access to the car park, please visit the city’s website.

Annual outdoor dinning fees abolished 
At Tuesday night’s meeting, Council approved amendments to the outdoor dining fees and charges for 2016, removing the annual outdoor dining permit fee.

The fee change is directed at supporting a diverse range of dining and drinking venues, particularly outdoors, and aims to benefit local businesses and the community at large by improving the activation of public spaces and adding vibrancy to the streetscape.

An application fee for a new outdoor dining permit still applies however there are no additional fees for:
  • renewal of a current permit
  • provision of advice, including site visits and assistance measuring and drafting plans of the area, prior to or during the application process
  • amendments to the current permit area
  • provision of a letter of consent to the Department of Racing, Gaming and Liquor if required.
For more information about outdoor dining and street trading visit the city’s website.
