Open For Business Directory

Help to support our traders during the COVID-19 pandemic and ensure that they can continue to survive during these unprecedented times. We have compiled a list of businesses still open within not only the Love My Place precincts but across the whole of the City of Port Phillip.

They’ve adapted their service offerings so that they can continue to provide you with their goods and services in line the Victorian Government COVID-19 Stage Three requirements. This includes online orders, delivery services and retail pop-ups.

COVID-19 - Council Updates

Since entering these uncharted waters, the health of our community, visitors and staff has been the City of Port Phillip’s greatest concern.

Council activated its Municipal Emergency Management Influenza Sub-Plan on 2 March, adapting this to cover COVID-19. This sub-plan clearly identifies Council’s role in responding to a pandemic which is to support the State Government’s DHHS Department as the lead response agency.

We have cancelled or postponed all large-scale gatherings planned for March/April and we will continue to work with Federal and Victorian Government guidelines about public safety and make all decisions based on a duty of care.

For continual updated information on changes to Council services, the current situation and where to access up to date information, what is Council doing and up to date advice of what Council services are affected, please go to our website: Access to City of Port Phillip Website

Businesses across the state can now access information on dealing with COVID-19 by calling the Business Victoria hotline on 13 22 15. In addition to calling the Business Victoria hotline, business operators can also find information at

High Country and Gippsland Comeback - Fitzroy Street

The fire ravaged regions of North East Victoria and Gippsland brought their wares to Melbourne courtesy of support from the City of Port Phillip’s Placemakers, VTIC, Optus, Origin, Bliss Search, Accommodation Association and 15 of their member hotels, instant retail, Linfox, Highlight, Officeworks, Exhibition Equipment Hire and the Government of Victoria.

The weekends we traded were terrific in terms of activating vacant spaces on the Street, taking over $37,000 in sales for the Producers and Makers, bringing a new audience to the Street and providing new, and needed, services and goods to the locals.

Huge thanks to our Landlords at 54 and 107 Fitzroy Street for providing the venues free of charge.

Unfortunately due to COVID-19 we had to close the stores earlier than hoped, which was to be 26 April.

What is Placemaking?

‘Placemaking’ is about creating a collection of places with distinct character and style. Think unique destinations that spark joy, that feeling of being connected to an area, your favourite places.

Placemaking embraces the ideas, energy and capital of the local community and works closely with the people who live, work and play there to create unique precincts and places across the city. At the heart of placemaking is the idea that the people who use the space are the ones who are best placed to plan its future development.
