Hobsons Bay Business Has Heart Outdoors Trading Program

Over the last six months the Hobsons Bay Business Has Heat Outdoors program has provided many local businesses the opportunity to operate despite strict social distancing limitations, to active and enhance their activity centre and to bring people back into their business.

The program has recently been extended to 31 May 2021 and Council is interested in learning what resident near business precincts, and the community at large, think about the program to help us determine what the future of outdoor trading could look like.
