Public Notices

MALOP STREET GREEN SPINE SUPPORT FOR TRADERS

The Revitalising Central Geelong Partnership team (made up of State Government and City of Greater Geelong officers) has been working closely with traders since the beginning of 2017, keeping them informed of the Green Spine project and since works have begun, providing a weekly look ahead of upcoming works to ensure there are no surprises for traders. 

The Green Spine will deliver significant benefits to central Geelong, bringing business into Malop Street and transforming the street into a draw-card for locals and tourists.

We appreciate that construction can impact existing traders, which is why an extensive trader support package has been put together for businesses in the works areas.
