Council’s Economic Development Team, along with colleagues and stakeholders, are conscious of ongoing impacts of COVID-19, flood and bushfires, along with considerable social and economic changes that now drive growth and pressures across the region.
With the Business Activation Plan we seek to enhance shared spaces and experiences in our town centres, and to boost promotions and support opportunities that benefit local business, events and community members. We have developed this Plan for action with key stakeholders.
Guiding Special Business Rate Variation Levy expenditure in Lismore until June 2023, the Business Activation Plan also seeks to identify new funding and partnership opportunities for Nimbin and larger-scale activation projects.
