Chapel St To Get Makeover

Stonnington Council has started compiling a Masterplan for this this iconic shopping strip in Prahran.

Residents, shoppers and retailers will be asked to contribute their thoughts on how a rejuvenated Chapel St should look. Options include new street furniture and lighting, open community spaces, green zones, and multi directional pedestrian crossings. Extra bike racks, street art, and relaxation areas have already been suggested by a retailers representative.

The Stonnington Mayor stressed that the council was looking to reinvigorate the precinct not reinvent it. Changes would be made with an eye to retaining the essential character of this popular shopping destination.
