Coronavirus (COVID-19) information

The City of Subiaco is responding to Coronavirus (COVID-19), as advised by the Federal and State Government. The City’s Administration Centre is now closed but we are still working.  We ask for your patience as we adapt to this fast changing environment.
The best source of current information on the pandemic is the Western Australian Department of Health website or the coronavirus health information line 1800 020 080.

Continuing services to our community

The Administration Centre at 241 Rokeby Road is closed. Most City employees are now working from home to deliver essential services to the community. 

Call or email us

We're available - you can contact us via phone or email at or (08) 9237 9222. If you're not sure whether a service is continuing during the pandemic, please ask us. 

Online services

We encourage you to use our online services wherever possible. You can lodge planning and building applications, contact our Rangers, report faults, pay a fine and report other issues online.

Rubbish collection

Waste, recycling and green waste collection will continue as usual. Please continue to recycle appropriately and place your bins out on collection day. During the pandemic, as more people work from home, please remember to reduce and reuse to help minimise waste.

Parking and ranger services

Our rangers are continuing their regular patrols and are here to help. Please continue to observe parking restrictions and signage, particularly around hospitals. Right now, we’re focussing our compliance activities towards safety and accessibility rather than timed restrictions, but our rangers may have to respond to specific issues as they arise. Please only park in designated parking bays, and do not put pedestrians or other drivers in danger.

Planning and building applications

You can still lodge planning and building applications and enquiries electronically. Development applications and building applications can be lodged through our online portal. Other applications and requests can be sent by email (some size restrictions apply) or post.

You can speak to a duty planner or building surveyor by phone during normal office hours on (08) 9237 9222 or by email to

Local business support

The City is supporting local businesses to implement changes and restrictions introduced by the Federal Government. 

We're currently assessing all of our programs and services to determine how immediate support for businesses, and the wider community, can best be delivered. These measures will be announced soon.

If you’re a local business owner, subscribe to our business enews to hear updates and opportunities that could support you. We've also compiled important information about business stimulus packages on our business support page

If you're a local who wants to support your local businesses, see the blog post on See Subiaco for details of local businesses offering services adapted to the current requirements.

COVID-19 relief for the community

The City is investigating ways in which we can provide support to the local community at this difficult time. We are working on new initiatives and measures we can put into place to provide relief and support to residents and businesses.
