Local Leadership Options

Our Market District’ (PDF) Listen flags intent to explore mechanisms for various local groups to exchange information, share opportunities to collaborate, and to act as a communication channel to Council and the State Government.  There are many ways local leaders can work together. 

After hearing from a number of experts, Council staff are preparing a discussion paper on possible different governance options for the district and a process for local people to consider them.  If you want more information, please contact us.


In August 2015, retail consultant David West shared a range of options to the Market District Reference Group to start a conversation around what might be possible.

In April 2016, to continue the conversation, Gordon Reid shared his experience managing, coordinating and marketing mainstreets and districts. Gordon is a UK expert that has worked in the CBD/main street regeneration and management sector since 1987. He has been CEO of the Edinburgh and Manchester centre management companies, city centre manager of Oxford and Dundee, and an active member of the Association of Town & City Management.  Following Gordon’s presentation, David West and Council’s Mick O’Neill shared their views, and all three answered questions.
