Council is launching a program to invigorate retail shopping areas and increase footfall in various locations across the coast.

Council will work to bring together local small business operators and retail property owners to fill long-term empty retail spaces. This will give new/start-up and home based businesses the opportunity to try retail in some of the best locations on the Coast. This will also create an introduction to potential business operators for retail property owners and managers.

Expression of Interest

If you are a creative/business owner and want to get involved, please submit the creative/business owner expression of interest.

If you are a retail property owner and want to get involved, please submit the property owner expression of interest.
