Local Business Partnership Initiative

""The Local Business Partnership Initiative (LBPI) 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.
