Dining out ‘must wait’

THE installation of Langtree Avenue’s outdoor dining spaces has again been pushed back pending liquor licensing and council planning approval.

A parklet design for outdoor dining similar to the Langtree Avenue proposal.

Three popular “Feast Street” establishments – Dom’s, Mildura Brewery and Pizza Cafe at the Grand – last year applied to convert car parking spaces to dining spaces as part of a three-year trial by Mildura Rural City Council.

Announcing the plan almost a year ago, Deputy Mayor John Arnold said the street could be serving up alfresco dining on the “parklet” decking constructions by summer.

In December, he pushed the deadline to winter.

Traders in March estimated the parklets could be up and running by July, but now say they are again expecting a summer opening.

“Because the parklets are going to be made off-site, it’s a case of one minute they won’t be there, and the next minute they will,” Pizza Cafe owner Joseph Carrazzasaid.

“We would like them to be ready by spring, but we definitely want them to be here for summer.”

All three traders will need their liquor ­licences extended to encompass the outdoor dining spaces, which also requires the council to approve a planning permit.
