The City of Subiaco’s Business Investment Plan: Attraction and Retention 2019 - 2022 was approved at the August Council Meeting enabling a targeted and collaborative approach for the City to support and facilitate business sustainability and growth through the retention of businesses and attraction of news business and investment.
Drafted to meet one of the key strategies within the City’s Economic Development Strategy – business retention and attraction – the plan formalises the work the City has been undertaking to ensure Subiaco is a great place to work, invest and do business.
The actions set out in the plan reflect the City’s commitment to a business friendly approach and its focus on collaboration and cooperation.
Informed by significant business and community consultation, the Business Investment Plan identifies five key strategies: nurture the existing business environment and retail trade; be a Smart City; build the after-business-hours economy (nights and weekends); provide positive business engagement; and attract business investment.
Actions within these strategies include partnering with organisations to provide a comprehensive program of business skills and events, creating a collaborative approach to stimulating the after-hours economy, and continuation of the City’s small business grants program.
