draft Urban Design Framework - the seasons

A recurrent theme in conversations about the draft UDF is the seasonality of the Port Melbourne waterfront. When its busy its very, very busy and when its quiet - not much is happening. How do we plan for, and accommodate, these seasonal variations? How do we best support our Beach St businesses in good times and in bad? Fishermen are hard core - not like the rest of us fair weather people. One of the things people wanted to achieve for Princes Pier was a place for people to fish. That has well and truly been achieved - fishermen and women are out there - hot or cold, raining or dry.
