Outdoor dining and trading has been abandoned in Rye after business owners told Mornington Peninsula Shire Council they would not use the temporary space that had been created for them along Point Nepean Rd.

In a statement this afternoon, the council said several Rye businesses that had applied for outdoor trading permits had now decided not to use the space. “This reduction in demand for outdoor dining and trading means the space is no longer viable,” it said.

The statement, which gave no reasons for the business owners’ change of heart, came just days after the council announced it had shortened the original outdoor space between Weir and Dundas streets to allow a short section of one Sorrento-bound lane to reopen to traffic. It also stated there had been no net loss of parking at Rye after the creation of 50 new car spots within walking distance of the main shopping strip; that it had installed smart parking signs alerting motorists to the number of parking bays available in the town’s larger carparks; and that accessible carparking spaces for those with a disability had been moved to spots close by the outdoor trading strip.

Outdoor dining and trading continues at Blairgowrie, Mornington, Mount Eliza, Mount Martha, McCrae, Rosebud and Sorrento.
