Community must also play a part

Kristin MacfarlaneSouth Western Times

CREATING a CBD that people want to visit is not a job confined to the council and retailers – the community has a part to play too.

Mayor Gary Brennan said the CBD Experience survey highlighted what the community could do to make more people flock to the CBD.

Members of the public could support businesses in the CBD, support events in the area and help create more events for the CBD and also have respect for the CBD, Mr Brennan said.

Respecting the CBD could include looking after the area, littering less and reducing ant-social behaviour.

Mr Brennan said the Greater Bunbury community had a part to pay in the revitalisation.

“It was quite clear from the survey that the community also has a big role to play with feedback encouraging greater support for CBD businesses and events,” Mr Brennan said.

“People also made it apparent that those visiting the CBD needed to have more respect for the area, such as reducing anti-social behaviour and picking up their litter.”
