I'll believe it when I see it. How will this actually be enforced? Though I am looking forward to taking my kids to the Mall again.

People will criticise this of course but I think everyone knows (including the smokers) that this is best for all

Good luck with the elderly blokes...they took no notice of lockdown rules..they will take no notice of this

There’s been a lot of media coverage about other Councils charging traders for use of outdoor dining areas.

I’m proud that Council supported my motion back in June to waive all outdoor dining fees for traders across the City of Monash for the next 12 months.

Since the pandemic began, we’ve always said that we’re in this together, and while I wish we had the financial capacity to assist more than we have (Monash was the only Council in the State to reduce rates), these small things will help.

If you’re not vaccinated, now is the time to talk to your doctor, and help us get back to the things we love!

You may already know from my previous posts that Council will shortly be installing road cushions in Chester and Portman Streets (most will know them as speed humps) in order to reduce hoon behaviour in the area and increase pedestrian safety. We're also installing CCTV monitoring on both streets around the mall.

I’m pleased to advise that last week Council also endorsed asking officers to look in to a 20km shared zone on Chester Street around the mall area – effectively between the laneway at the back of Vanilla and also the laneway behind Five

Council will undertake community consultation in early 2022

As a separate project, we’re also looking in to the feasibility of making some of the temporary outdoor dining areas (created in response to COVID-19) permanent installations.

The idea of a shared zone is reducing the dominance of cars and allowing a more pedestrian friendly environment through raised roadways and street furniture. You probably would have seen examples of this around coastal towns such as Anglesea and through surf beach areas on the east coastThese changes have come about after an approach by the Oakleigh Traders Association and an appetite from Councillors to increase the pedestrian footprint of the mall. Similar moves were made in the 1980s. Prior to that, Eaton Mall as actually a street with vehicle movements. We have one of the best cosmopolitan areas in Melbourne, and increasing the footprint of the mall will encourage more traders to the area.More information here: www.monash.vic.gov.au/About-Us/News/Trial-on-proposed-pedestrian-changes-Oakleigh

Finally 😊 Being requesting a solution to the hoon behaviour for years. Thanks for the work you do

I shall forever refer to them as road cushions from now on 🤣

Great idea Stuart.
