Council is calling tenders for an economic development study.
The scope of the study will include a review of all the local business and industrial centres in the City to identify their key economic attributes and measures in order to facilitate their viability and productivity.
It will look at the changing trends in retail and employment patterns as well as factors affecting the operation of the centres including traffic, public transport and economic infrastructure.
The study will examine the existing and projected demand and supply of retail, business and industrial land in the City to 2020. It will make recommendations that will assist Council to ensure that adequate provision is made in its strategic planning instruments to encourage economic activity that promotes the growth and sustainability of centres and supports the employment targets set down in the draft Metropolitan Strategy for Sydney to 2031.
