The temporary outdoor dining 'spacelet' program was introduced in 2020 to support hospitality businesses in dealing with COVID restrictions on patron numbers in their venues. Council received funding from the Victorian government to set up 15 spacelets around Bayside and one marquee on the Concourse Green in Beaumaris.

We're collating your feedback to help Council understand the range of impacts - both positive and negative - that outdoor dining spacelets bring to Bayside. Council will also be considering whether to introduce spacelets permanently or on a seasonal or event basis.

Consultation was open from 18 November - 16 December 2021.

The consultation is now closed. Thank you for your feedback.
