Chapel Street’s entertainment precinct is vitally important to Melbourne’s lifestyle and culture. It provides employment opportunities for hospitality professionals, world class tourism options for interstate and international visitors, a place to relax, unwind and enjoy good food and good fun for Melbournians.
Chapel Street has become a Melbourne icon in itself due to its nightlife culture. Recently, a small group of retailers and residents have begun to oppose the expansion of this nightlife due to oppose the development of the hospitality industry in the area due to unfounded claims of antisocial behaviour linked to alcohol. In fact, this vocal minority would have the public believe that every person who frequents a licensed premises is a violent, antisocial drunk - an assertion that we the undersigned find preposterous.

I, being a local resident/local trader/visitor/ strongly oppose the protest by AAVOTES against the chapel street entertainment precinct.
I believe that Chapel Street has a vibrant atmosphere that is only enhanced by its diverse range of bars, cafes and nightlife. “Chapel Street” is Melbourne and I strongly agree that more cafés, bars, restaurants and retail shops is a positive not a negative.
