Woolloongabba area council committed to improving satellite CBDs

September 27, 2018 by  

Brisbane City Council, which incorporates the inner suburb of Woolloongabba, has said it will work with the local community to ensure Wynnum and the surrounding area becomes a prime destination for tourists.

The council has not yet fully elaborated on whether the planned transformation of Wynnum will include the revitalisation of the area’s shopping district.

Wynnum Business General Manger David Bateson recently proposed a project to improve the suburb’s shopping precinct in order to curtail the number of businesses moving out of the CBD. Local councillor Peter Cumming threw his support behind the project, telling the Wynnum Herald he had funding to build a new website to help communication between businesses and customers.

Deputy Mayor Adrian Schrinner told the Courier Mail the area needed to remind people of all it had to offer. He said:

“Wynnum is one of the city’s most picturesque bayside suburbs and Brisbane City Council is committed to working with local businesses and residents to transform it into one of Brisbane’s premier tourism destinations.”

He commented the council had increased investment in supporting local businesses by $100,000 in the past financial year. Cr Schrinner noted other recent improvements to amenities, such as public wi-fi, a new library and public parks. Increasing the flow of visitors to Wynnum may lead to extra demand for business card printing services.
