Road changes finalised

Road changes finalised Image

The City of Port Phillip is moving ahead with formally discontinuing roads surrounding Kirrip Park and South Melbourne Primary School in the Montague Precinct.

It follows the long-running dispute with local businesses between 2016 and 2017, when the council announced that it would be discontinuing roads and removing on-street car parking to create a more pedestrian-friendly community precinct for the school.

Following ongoing consultation with businesses at Surveyors Place and neighbouring Meaden St, the council proceeded with discontinuing sections of Kerr, Ferrars and Gladstone streets to provide for a larger Kirrip Park.

On October 16, City of Port Phillip councillors unanimously passed a motion to consider removing the roads from its register of public roads under the Road Management Act 2004.

South Melbourne Primary School and Kirrip Park were opened in 2018.
