Have your say on two ideas for Sandringham Village

Thursday 8 September 2022

We are looking to understand your views on potential changes to the use of Melrose Street and an idea to designate Council's underground carpark in Sandringham Village for trader parking only.

Melrose Street

What do you think about the possible pedestrianisation of a section of the road in Melrose Street, Sandringham? The potential road closure is between 12 Melrose Street and Station Street in Sandringham Village.

This idea has been put forward by members of the community who have a desire for an increase in public open space within Sandringham Village. Pedestrians would be able to pass through the proposed road closure at any time.

We need to understand if there is a level of a support for this idea from anyone who visits, shops, lives, works, or owns a business or property in Sandringham. This feedback will be presented to Council in December 2022 to determine the next step. If supported, there would be further community engagement on preferred concept designs.

Trader parking 

We're also looking for feedback on the idea to introduce a trader parking permit scheme to provide dedicated use to local traders of Council's underground carpark located at 122 Beach Road, Sandringham .

The car park, which is accessed off the roundabout at the intersection of Bay Road and Station Street, currently provides 36 four-hour parking spaces and is used by traders, shoppers and visitors. A trader parking permit scheme, if supported, would provide the opportunity for all-day parking for traders near their business.

Have your say

We want to hear your feedback on the two ideas for Sandringham Village. Your feedback will help Council to determine how we move forward.

You can participate in this consultation via Have Your Say, webinars and in person at pop-up events before the consultation closes on 14 October 2022.
