MAR­KET OPEN­ING POST­PONED

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

THE con­tro­ver­sial Mar­kets on Rokeby has post­poned its 2016 re­open­ing to March. Up to 14 Rokeby Road busi­ness own­ers met in Novem­ber and De­cem­ber last year to dis­cuss how the mar­kets’ two-day road clo­sure had dam­aged their trade. Bistro Felix di­rec­tor Tony Cariss said the mar­ket own­ers and oper­a­tors Venn Prop­erty Group (VPG) needed to ur­gently re­view the week­end mar­ket’s lay­out, traf­fic man­age­ment and op­er­at­ing hours. A City of Su­bi­aco spokes­woman said VPG were “tak­ing a break” to plan for the com­ing year. “The City con­tin­ues to work with VPG, and looks for­ward to Mar­kets on Rokeby re­turn­ing big­ger and bet­ter in 2016,” she said.
