Council invites residents to help shape local night time experiences

08/12/2020

Georges River residents are encouraged to share feedback on Council’s draft Night Time Economy Study which is on Public Exhibition until 30 January 2021.
 
Council is seeking to diversify options available in the Georges River area at night including food and beverage and entertainment experiences, and is inviting the community to share feedback on the Study.
 
Mayor of Georges River Council Kevin Greene said that the Study is a significant opportunity to support local business, improve the lifestyle in the Georges River area and attract people from outside the area.
 
“In Australia, night time activity plays an important and diverse role in the community, valued at over $134 billion and employing over 1.1 million people in 2018,” said Mayor Greene.
 
“Council recognises the enormous potential to grow the night time economy in the Georges River area, and we welcome the NSW Government’s recent announcement of its 24-Hour Economy Strategy for Sydney.
 
“I look forward to seeking opportunities to align plans for future night time economy development with this strategy,” added Mayor Greene.
 
The Night Time Economy Study and proposed initiatives outlined in the Action Plan have been aligned with the NSW Government’s Sydney 24-Hour Economy Strategy. It will provide insight into the current status of the Georges River night time economy and investigate opportunities for improvement over the next four years.
 
The draft Night Time Economy Study is on public exhibition for 60 days for community feedback and Council will consider a report including an analysis of feedback at a future meeting.
