3. RE-OPENING RETAIL

As outlined in the Victorian Government's roadmap, we are excited for the opportunity for retail to reopen outdoors.

Businesses looking to use the footpath for a commercial service (such as the display of goods) are required to apply and obtain a footpath trading permit from the City of Stonnington.  This is being offered at no cost until 31 December 2021.

Alternatively, if you have a backyard or off-street parking you would like to use for outdoor retail contact the City of Stonnington Business Concierge Service.
