Local Business Partnership Initiative

""The Local Business Partnership Initiative enables business owners and operators to collaborate with Brisbane City Council to identify opportunities that will improve investment and create sustainable local economies. Council will collaborate with local businesses through a process of online surveys and ongoing consultation sessions.

The initiative aligns with outcomes identified in the Brisbane 2022 New World City Action Plan. This action plan sets out key economic priorities to support long-term economic growth, including developing and enhancing Brisbane’s unique business precincts.

Sandgate Local Business Partnership Initiative

Council has identified Sandgate business precinct as the next area for the Local Business Partnership Initiative. This initiative provides an opportunity for the local business community to work together with Council to help the precinct reach its full potential and bolster economic activity.

You can register for workshops to discuss the challenges and opportunities for growth in Sandgate.

Stones Corner Local Business Partnership Initiative

Brisbane City Council worked with the Stones Corner business community to create the first Local Business Partnership Initiative strategy in 2016. After a series of workshops and research Council collaborated with the local business community to develop an action plan to help establish Stones Corner as a vibrant, diverse urban village.

The Stones Corner Local Business and Destination Plan focuses on transforming Stones Corner into a thriving business precinct. The plan outlines a series of actions which local businesses will implement, including presenting festivals and events, improving visitor signage and  increasing community engagement.
