We prove that, for any cofinally Polish space X, every locally finite family of non-empty open subsets of X is countable. It is also established that Lindelöf domain representable spaces are cofinally Polish and domain representability coincides with subcompactness in the class of σ-compact spaces. It turns out that, for a topological group G whose space has the Lindelöf Σ-property, the space G is domain representable if and only if it is Čech-complete. Our results solve several published open questions.
