Suburban Shopfront Activation

Brisbane City Council is bringing our suburbs to life by encouraging pop-up use of empty suburban shopfronts.

Suburban Shopfront Activation is a pilot program that encourages property owners with vacant premises in Brisbane suburbs to provide opportunities for temporary use by emerging businesses.

Council is also putting out a call to emerging businesses that are interested in occupying a temporary space and will maintain a register to assist property owners in finding a suitable temporary tenant.

This program is one of the ways that Council is striving to ensure Brisbane is Australia’s most small business-friendly city with more support in the suburbs.
