CHANGES to the schedule of streetscape works in Port Fairy have been made after consultations with local traders.
Moyne Shire Council has decided to start work on the western side of the footpath at the northern end in front of the Hub Cafe on Sackville Street following discussions with the traders’ association.
This will minimise impacts if the footpath component of the project runs into the school holidays.
Moyne Shire mayor James Purcell said it was important that council listened to traders as the project continues.
“We have always been clear that we will always attempt to minimise the effect of streetscape works on local traders,” Cr Purcell said.
Two-hour parking restrictions will also be imposed on Sackville Street for the remainder of the streetscape project in an attempt to minimise issues with parking.
Parking restrictions will come into effect from Friday, August 8, and streetscape works will continue until October.
