How do inspections work?
Once the café is constructed, you are required to request an inspection. Please contact 311 to put in a request for an inspection.
For seasonal cafes: Another inspection automatically takes place on the day following the expiry date of your licence to ensure all infrastructure has been reinstated and the café has been removed.
