Busi­nesses help City shape its 10-year vi­sion

Southern Telegraph - - News - Gareth McKnight

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.”
