Oakleigh businessman, George Spiropoulos, has been left stunned by Monash Council’s decision to revert some outdoor dining spaces into car parks, Nine News reports.

Mr Sotiropoulos, who runs Greca Street, spent close to $80,000 on his outdoor space but Council has now told him he would need to be packed up by June 30.

Monash Council has made the decision to revert some outdoor dining spaces into car parks.

Monash Council Mayor, Stuart James, told Nine News the council had done enough to support trades during COVID-19 and now that indoor dining was back, they need to balance such areas.

This decision has also angered the Glen Waverley Traders Association. President, Christo Christophidis, said the extra dining opportunities were fantastic for businesses.

Most other councils have given the green light to parklets remaining with some introducing new permit schemes and fees.
