Businesses help City shape its 10-year vision
About 60 members of the business community attended a planning workshop last week to express their opinions on areas the City of Rockingham should focus on in its 10-year strategic plan.
Hosted as a partnership between the City and the Rockingham Kwinana Chamber of Commerce, the event was facilitated by Black House Consulting principal Michael Smith.
Feedback from the business community will now be considered, with areas such as additional parking, the establishment of a new caravan park and the potential for light rail from the Rockingham railway station to the foreshore some of the ideas put forward.
Chamber chief executive Tony Solin said it was encouraging that the City was considering the business community ahead of developing its Strategic Community Plan 2019-2029.
“Rockingham is a great place to do business but we want a cohesive approach to attract more investment and help those making a living in the region,” he said.
“Business owners attending the workshop were vocal in their ideas and we hope these are taken on board before the strategic plan is adopted.”
