Parramatta. Focus groups cancelled

Parramatta City Council has cancelled focus groups to discuss the continuation of the infrastructure and economic special rates levied on the city’s business sector - for lack of interest. Council expected a good attendance, especially, as it canvassed the 300 business people who attended the State of the City Address by Lord Mayor, Paul Garrard. So much so it limited one group place to each organisation. The objective of the two groups was to ascertain and understand the views of business regarding the continuation of the special rates, plus which of the following broad project areas were important: marketing the city to visitors, investment attraction, securing major events, redevelopment of key city sites and provision of socio-economic data and information.
