Activating Bay Street

The Port Melbourne Business Association (PMBA) is researching ideas to make Bay Street more attractive to visitors and residents.

An early outcome from work to-date is the suggestion to close a section of Liardet Street between Bay Street and Lyons Street to create a community Square. The Square could be used for activities (e.g. yoga, slow movement, kids’ gym) and entertainment, all designed to attract visitors. The street closure would be for a six months trial.

The BCNA supports this work by the PMBA. The BCNA has written to Council expressing in-principle support and encouraging Council to work with PMBA to examine the feasibility of the Square proposal.

If readers have views about this subject, or the Square proposal, they should contact the President of the Port Melbourne Business Association at paul.littmann@gmail.com or Peter Smith, CEO, City of Port Phillip at ceo@portphillip.vic.gov.au.
