Your Voice Counts

Business Regeneration Forum

On Tuesday 13th Dec at 6.30-7.30pm at the Sharks Sporting Club, Colburn Ave, Victoria Point, business Owners from Victoria Point and Coochiemudlo Island are invited to attend a Business Regeneration Forum.

Local business is the life blood of our community. In particular small to medium locally owned businesses which provide employment, wealth and form part of the culture and character of our community.

Redland City Council increased commercial rates this year by 11.5% which no doubt has impacted negatively on rents and your bottom line if you lease premises. Many other trade and home based businesses are also doing it tough. I was shocked to read in the Redlands 2030 Community Plan that it does not rate business as a top priority and states “No timeframes and costing available” for economic development and job creation.

It is vital for Council to understand your business and support you to grow and prosper in the community. As a candidate I want to hear all about your views, concerns and the challenges you face.

I believe your voice counts. Come together as a combined group and discuss ways to encourage growth and cross promotion so that all businesses will benefit in 2012.

Please RSVP by Dec 9 to to attend this event.
