Who Are We?

The Chapel Street Precinct Association (CSPA) is an independent membership-based, not for profit, destination marketing incorporated association. We are an advocacy and marketing body that represents over 2,200 commercial properties and businesses in the iconic Melbourne suburbs of South Yarra, Windsor and Prahran.

Precinct Map

Funds for the CSPA are primarily raised through a Special Rate collected by the City of Stonnington. The rate is then provided to CSPA to market and promote the Chapel Street Precinct area. Please click below for the map outlining this Chapel Street Precinct special rate area and to see if your business falls within the CSPA boundary.
