We’ve partnered with local businesses and trader associations to enable more outdoor dining across Boroondara. By fast tracking permit applications and waiving all Council permit fees, we’re helping businesses to take dining to the streets over the summer months ahead.

So far, we’ve installed parklets in 29 locations. This supports approximately 52 businesses to extend their outdoor dining space across some of our major shopping precincts including:

  • Glenferrie Road
  • Camberwell Junction
  • Auburn Village
  • Ashburton
  • Greythorn
  • Balwyn North.

Parklets are temporary spaces for outdoor dining built out in car parking bays. They're made safe with fencing, traffic safety barriers and planters.

Across the City, you’ll also find businesses trading:

  • on footpaths
  • on their private land (like courtyards)
  • in some of Boroondara’s public spaces.

This helps them to serve customers in a safe manner while adhering to Victorian Government COVIDSafe guidelines.

We encourage our community to support local businesses during this critical time on the road to economic recovery. Dine alfresco while you reconnect with friends and loved ones and linger longer in Boroondara’s iconic shopping strips.

Together, let’s bring Boroondara back to life.
