Have your say

This yearly survey will help us understand the ongoing impacts of the pandemic on our business community, check on current business needs and monitor economic trends.

Your feedback will help shape our future business support and policies. It will also help us advocate other levels of government.

What we’re doing

As recovery continues from the economic effects of the pandemic we invite you to share key insights about your business needs, priorities and operational challenges.

We want to hear from local retailers, creative businesses, tourism operators, hospitality owners and businesses working in professional services and technology.

Your responses will help shape our business support initiatives and ensure our upcoming economic development strategy aligns with your needs and priorities.

Why we’re doing this

First prompted by Covid recovery, our surveys in 2020, 2021 and 2022 directly shaped our support for business. This included CBD activation grants, the CBD revitalisation campaign, outdoor dining fee waivers, free capacity building programs like Reboot and the business innovation program.

It will also help shape our priorities for our local economy and determine how we can create a sustainable and resilient economic future.

How you can give feedback

Consultation closes at 5pm on Monday 23 October 2023.
