NSW Guide for Opening and Running a Business in the Night Time Economy18.02.2019
The NSW Government has launched a new guide for those interested in opening and running a business in the Night Time Economy (NTE).
Created by the Department of Planning and Environment, the guide is designed as a quick and easy reference for anyone considering establishing or expanding a business within the NTE sector in New South Wales. Music and entertainment, food and drink, and the arts are specific areas of focus.
The guide includes:
- A step by step guide to the approvals process, including the development application (DA) and liquor licence process
- What the NTE is and how development within this sector requires additional considerations during the DA process
- Common NTE uses and corresponding land use definitions to help guide you through the DA process
- Examples of council policy and processes from across NSW to highlight that every council has subtle differences that need to be acknowledged when navigating the approvals process
- Relevant NSW legislation
