ACCESS TO ST JOSEPH’S CARPARK
Stonnington Council has blocked access from Chapel Street to our church carpark at St Joseph’s with a temporary “Pop-Up-Park”. Access is still possible from Chapel St via Arthur Street, Portland Place and then Fitzgerald Street; OR by using Davison Place, which is now a two-way laneway, directly to the carpark entrance from Arthur Street.
