After feedback from local business owners at Rye late last week, Mornington Peninsula Shire has made the decision to remove the temporary outdoor dining and trading space along Point Nepean Road.
Several Rye businesses who had applied for outdoor trading permits have now decided not to use the newly created space. This reduction in demand for outdoor dining and trading means the space is no longer viable.
The Rye outdoor dining and trading space was one of many installed in townships across the Peninsula to help local businesses bounce back from lockdown and keep our community COVID-safe this summer.
Trading outdoors allows local businesses to maximise their trade under the State Government’s ongoing density limitations.
Is it important to remember that physical distancing requirements are still in force, which includes maximum numbers of people in any commercial indoor area, whether it be retail, professional services or hospitality.
Elsewhere on the Peninsula, outdoor dining and trading continues at Blairgowrie, Mornington, Mount Eliza, Mount Martha, McCrae, Rosebud and Sorrento.
