Connect Stonnington

Providing feedback and ideas to Council will now be easier thanks to the launch of a new, custom-built digital platform: Connect Stonnington.

Connect Stonnington has been developed to support open dialogue and community participation in decision-making in an interactive and easy-to-use way.

The new platform makes it easy for the Stonnington community to learn about, provide feedback and shape some of Council’s most important projects and is part of Stonnington’s commitment to being a more accessible, transparent and responsive organisation.


The City of Stonnington has entered an election (caretaker) period prior to the October 2016 Council election. In order to comply with our Election Period Policy and the Local Government Act 1989, we are moderating material being published by Council.

    The pop-up trial will be extended until the end of November 2016 to allow further analysis during the warmer months. Council made the decision to extend the trial at its 22 August meeting. During the trial you may notice modifications to some of the temporary treatments – these will be made in line with some of the feedback we have received to-date.

    After the trial, a report summarising the consultation, feedback and analysis will be presented for Council’s consideration. There will be an opportunity for you to make a submission to a committee of council prior to Council making a... Continue reading

    The pop-up trial will be extended until the end of November 2016 to allow further analysis during the warmer months. Council made the decision to extend the trial at its 22 August meeting. During the trial you may notice modifications to some of the temporary treatments – these will be made in line with some of the feedback we have received to-date.

    After the trial, a report summarising the consultation, feedback and analysis will be presented for Council’s consideration. There will be an opportunity for you to make a submission to a committee of council prior to Council making a final decision on the proposal.

    Adjustments to the temporary treatments and 3 month extension:

    Feedback provided during the trial has created an opportunity for Council to understand what is working well and what can be improved. Council will be making adjustments to the temporary treatments based on feedback received. Changes will be made with minimal impact and include:

    Between Grattan Street and Porter Street

    · Widening the road a little to allow better west bound traffic flow

    · Returning cars spaces between Grattan Street and Porter Street

    · Replacing cafe barriers and plastic kerbs with line marking to delineate parking bays

    · More signage and line marking at the Porter and Greville Street intersection

    Between Izett Street and Grattan Street

    · Rearrangement of the parking bays and dining areas to increase parking and create more useable dining spaces

    · Providing additional loading zone for business owners

    Between Izett Street and Chapel Street

    · Providing three additional car spaces on the Southern side of the road for evening use

    · Retaining existing layout of temporary dining spaces

    King Street between Chapel and Little Chapel

    · Rearrangement of furniture and lighting to encourage more people to use the space.

    · Provision of a loading zone at the east end of the street.

    The purpose of the proposed changes is to improve the pedestrian environment in Greville Street which has been made possible by introducing a one way traffic movement. The one way movement has also reduced traffic volumes and improved the safety of the intersection at Izett Street. The wider footpaths will create a safer environment and more space for the 4000 pedestrians that currently use Greville Street daily and makes allowance for the forecast densification of the area. It also provides an opportunity for traders to take advantage of the additional space for kerb side trading.

    Extension of street trade permit and liquor licences

    Local Laws have extended the 3 month permits. This extension should be enough for Liquor Licensing to consider and extend the licences for this period.

    Following the trial, there will be further opportunities to provide comments and feedback on the changes in order for council to decide on a way forward for permanent implementation.


    Thank you for feedback on the trial changes. Your input is helping Council modify the designs to create a better balance between pedestrian spaces, greenery, traffic and car parking in the traffic design.
