Reactivating Oxford Street

Monday 17 October 2016

In Parliament I commended these projects and called for the government to support the East Sydney Destination Marketing Strategy developed by the Darlinghurst Business Partnership, Potts Point Partnership and Surry Hills Creative Precinct. I repeated calls for amended liquor restrictions to support local venues, light rail as a transport solution and removal of the clearway.

The City of Sydney, Woollahra Municipal Council, local businesses and residents have been working together to reactivate Oxford Street. In Parliament I commended these projects and called for the government to support the East Sydney Destination Marketing Strategy developed by the Darlinghurst Business Partnership, Potts Point Partnership and Surry Hills Creative Precinct. I repeated calls for amended liquor restrictions to support local venues, light rail as a transport solution and removal of the clearway.

I will soon meet with the City of Sydney and Oxford Street business owners to look at collaborating tenancies and a curated approach to filling empty shops. My speech is HERE.
