Campbelltown City Council has partnered with Renew Australia to investigate the feasibility of implementing a project that will activate commercial vacancies within the Queen Street Precinct. The project, Campbelltown Spaces, will aim to increase the diversity of products and services available, encourage new and repeat visitation, and support the local creative and entrepreneurial community.
This survey has been created by Renew Australia to collect feedback from Local Traders and representatives. Your local insights, experience and opinions will help to gauge interest in longer-term activation strategies to reduce commercial property vacancies and improve main street vibrancy.
About Renew Australia
Renew Australia is a national social enterprise designed to catalyse community renewal, economic development, the arts, and creative industries across Australia.
How Renew activation projects work?
- Renew works with property owners and agents to breathe life into empty spaces by making them rent-free to creative enterprises
- Renew and the property owner carefully select enterprises that suit the premises and surrounding businesses
- Any creative enterprise will not directly compete with existing tenants in the area
- The tenant has a 30-day license and property owner can keep the property for lease and show interested parties
- The tenant or the property owner can give 30 days’ notice at any time to vacate.
