Following a successful trial closure and community consultation, Peel Street in the city is now permanently closed to vehicle traffic. This closure means the street can be transformed into a pedestrian-friendly environment with traders having the opportunity to expand their outdoor dining areas. It is hoped that the more connected laneway community will ignite the vibrancy of the city even more.
So, to celebrate, you are invited to experience a 'meet the maker' evening as you wander between Peel Street and Leigh Street from 5.30pm on Friday the 4th of August 2017. There will be mouth-watering food, wine, beer, cocktails, tastings, demonstrations. And don't forget your wallet in order to purchase something on the night.
