The introduction of outdoor trade to help businesses recover from lockdown is working well, according to Mornington Peninsula Shire Council. In a statement last Friday the council said: “In townships across the Peninsula, attractive outdoor dining and retail spaces are being created to allow businesses to maximise their trade under the State Government’s ongoing density limitations.

“Part of Main St, Mornington, has been closed to traffic and opened up to pedestrians and cyclists to create more space for outdoor dining and retail. Extra outdoor dining and retail space has also been created in Blairgowrie, Mount Eliza, Mount Martha, McCrae, Rosebud, Sorrento and, most recently, Rye.

“After further discussions with Rye traders this week, the outdoor dining and trading space created between Weir and Dundas streets has been shortened and now runs between Weir and Napier streets. This means a short section of one Sorrento-bound lane between Napier St and Dundas St has been reopened to traffic.

“Parking space and parking turnover are a critical consideration in our planning for outdoor dining. At Rye, there has been no net loss of parking, with the creation of 50 new car spots within walking distance of the main shopping strip. Parking in Rye has also been made easier with the installation of smart parking signage, which alerts motorists to the number of parking bays available in each of the larger carparks around the township. Accessible carparking spaces for those with a disability have been relocated to spots close by.

“Shire officers will continue to work closely with local businesses to activate, improve the amenity and refine the approach at Rye and find a balance that best suits individual needs.”
