In contrast with 'Michael South Terrace', I feel very safe in the area, including Hutt Street, and do not support an increased police presence or any change to the location of the Hutt Street Centre. The high level of vacant business properties in Hutt Street has and is having a significant impact on the social and economic character of the street. Council should play a much stronger role incentivising the use of vacant property, otherwise the community has no capacity to influence property owners unwilling to reduce rents to a level that will attract tenants. Improving seating and street landscaping will also encourage more use of the spaces, businesses and facilities in the area, plus build a stronger sense of a vibrant community.

Many people do not feel safe in the South Ward especially the Hutt Street Precinct, and with reason.An ongoing police surveillance and presence would assist.Moving the Hutt Street Centre would more than likely solve the problem.An active policing of people begging on the streets and sleeping under verandahs and shop fronts.Other than that,More lighting at pavement level would assist security at night.Attractive street furniture so as the ever diminishing number people who work in the street actually have somewhere to sit other than a cafe.Parking arrangements that assist business, e.g. if one had a two hour hairdressing appointment or a medical or business appointment there is simply no where to park, this could be overcome by council issuing businesses with time extension permits valid only for the day to be displayed in clients cars.Upgrading the general amenity and look of Hutt Street, and the South Ward in General, thorough and regular cleaning.Low level WELL maintained plantings.Council incentives to assist business that go to businesses not landlords.Council incentives to assist existing and successful businesses upgrade in a scheme similar to the scheme use to assist residents install solar power assistance.A scheme to assist businesses open shop fronts rather than the traditional single door entrances.
