About the project
Parklets were introduced in 2020 as an initiative to create welcoming communal spaces for outdoor dining and trading. The parklets supported businesses to extend their seating areas while density limits were in place and allowed our community to dine in a COVID-safe manner.
We aim to balance the needs of residents, business owners and visitors while facilitating economic development through enhanced streetscape vibrancy, increased dwell time and more access to dining experiences.
What is a parklet?
Parklets are a means for business to safely extend their outdoor trading area beyond the footpath. It usually involves the temporary use of on street parking spaces for outdoor dining and trader use.
