Funding to unlock business and industry development and make the CBD a safe and vibrant place?
We can do a lot with no funding.
A vibrant place means no empty shops. It means activity and people in the mall.
If shops remain closed because rents are too high the Mall will never be vibrant.
The council should levy rates on the properties in the Mall dependent on their use or lack thereof.
If a shop is empty charge higher rates.
Make it better for the landowner to rent their property at a lower rate than leave it empty.
The shops will open and more people will come to the Mall.

It seems the independents are being a lot more effective in standing up for their community than either the government or the so called opposition.
