The publicly accessible seating trial has kicked off, with four traders signed up so far to act as caretakers for six sets of tables and chairs across the Street while receiving a discount on footpath trading fees. These bistro style ‘Love Fitzroy Street’ branded seats are for public use and traders work to make them available for public use outside of their footpath trading areas using their regular business hours.


Keen to join the trial?
We are looking for additional traders to place seats and tables out and by participating, you can receive a $500 discount on your footpath trading this financial year.

Please contact Sylvia via placemaking@portphillip.vic.gov.au or call us on 03 9209 6433.
