What are we doing to keep the community safe?

Our focus remains the health, wellbeing and safety of everyone in our centres - our customers, retailers, team members and the broader community.

Of course, we continue to have a range of stringent and protective measures in place including:

  • Physical and digital signage reminding customers to keep a safe distance apart
  • Window signage and floor decals for our retailers to assist with communicating physical distancing measures
  • Floor decals and physical distancing reference points in key areas
  • Increased sanitisation and cleaning of all customer touch points and high traffic areas
  • Hand sanitiser at all entrances, lift lobbies and high traffic locations
  • Heat-mapping to help our team identify any busy zones in our centre
  • Social Distancing Officers in-centre during peak periods, reminding customers of distancing guidelines
  • Regular public announcements centre-wide, communicating distancing expectations
  • Security officers, in high visibility vests, are monitoring our centres, together with supporting local police to enforce social distancing requirements as appropriate
  • Zero tolerance on anti-social or disrespectful behaviour

WHAT WE DO TODAY, CAN DEFINE OUR TOMORROW.

Your comfort and well-being is our main priority. We are taking extra precautions to ensure our centre is clean and hygienic every time you visit.
