We’d like your feedback on the Rediscover Local outdoor dining parklets (like the one above) that have popped up on Burgundy Street, Heidelberg; Upper Heidelberg Rd, Ivanhoe; and Silverdale Rd, Eaglemont.

We want to hear from you so we can better understand:

  • The positive and negative impacts of the parklets to both the community and businesses;
  • Any long-term benefits in retaining the parklets on an ongoing basis.

 Why is this project important?

  • To understand current usage of the parklets (by the cafes, restaurants and patrons)
  • To understand user experience of the parklets including walkability, active transport impacts
  • To understand visitor/shopper experience of the areas surrounding the parklets
  • To determine traders’ views on impact of parklets on their business operation
  • To determine traders’ views on the possible future of the parklets
  • To determine traders’ views on expansion to purposes
  • To determine user and traders’ views on reconfiguring/altering spaces during colder months
  • To understand councillors’ views.
