TEDDER Avenue can be blocked off for pedestrians and speeds reduced to 10km/h under a dramatic plan to revive the famous trading precinct and turn it into the Gold Coast’s answer to LA’s world-famous Rodeo Drive.

Attracting major name traders and diversifying the area’s retail offerings are seen as the key to reviving the fortunes of the once hip strip.

But city leaders are ambivalent about any proposal to close Tedder Ave to car traffic.

Plans to overhaul the famous retail precinct so it competes with rivals Broadbeach, Surfers Paradise and Southport also include developing an event calendar and better pedestrian links to The Spit. .  .continue to article

Exciting stuff

So far there has been”2″ comments supporting the Rodeo Drive ideas of Closing off Vehicle Access to Tedder Avenue.
The balance of comments are against. I have highlighted below some constructive comments coming in.


Australian labels like ginger and smart, Sass and bide, scanlan and Theodore, Zimmerman, Camilla on the street! This will attract all the yummy mummies to shop there and also eat at the cafes. Similar to what Paddington in Sydney is like.

boutique hotel like the Luxe on Rodeo Drive with a funky bar and a few luxury brand shops and watch the people pour back.

Have an Events calendar, not just the GC600, and welcome young crowds back and pump some music.

Bring back the post office.

Good Traders are going well and underperforming traders need to lift their game and reinvent themselves to meet the current lifestyle expectations.

Another Friendly Italian Restaurant plus a dedicated Seafood Restaurant

Bourbon St . Close off Tedder on Friday Saturday nights and Sunday afternoons . Allow people to wander down the streets with a drink in hand and Allow the restaurants to set up food stalls . Have a couple of bands but not too noisy of course ! There is no appetite in this street for a Rodeo Drive
