Throughout the pandemic and the rolling lockdowns last year, we’ve spent more time in our neighbourhoods than ever before enjoying local spaces and discovering new parts in our local area to treasure.

We heard many of us valued living more locally and that the experience helped build neighbourly connections and show community capacity and strength in looking out for each other.

As Melbourne re-emerges and re-connects, we are developing a Neighbourhood Portal to make South Yarra the best it can be.

We want all members of our community, including people who speak various languages, to participate in shaping our neighbourhood. If you need interpreter support, please contact us using the details below.

Other interpreter support: Please call 03 9280 0726.
