The issues facing the Gerringong/Gerroa business community have been discussed at a meeting which brought together business owners, the Council and the State Government, including
Gareth Ward MP and the Director of Southern NSW Premier and Cabinet.
The meeting was convened by local business woman Robyne Ippoliti of Oak Home Gerringong, and facilitated by Council, in response to the cumulative impact of a number of factors.
The meeting provided an opportunity to share their concerns and talk about opportunities to bring about positive changes.
Concerns centred around the impact of the bypass (now exacerbated by the roadworks at Shoalhaven Heads), lack of attractive gateway entrance from the highway, closure of the ANZ Bank, parking, lack of a local business network, and locals not shopping locally.
Many opportunities were identified, and they will be the focus of the next meeting.
Details: Monday 30 July, Mercure Gerringong, 6-7.30pm. Register at nextgerringongbusinessmeeting.eventbrite.com.au
