Bob Tolputt is a Burnie resident and small business owner determined to return the city by the sea back to its former glory.

Concerned by the amount of vacant shops and the high price of rent in the Burnie CBD, Bob has put together the ‘Living in Burnie’ survey to try and improve the future of the North-West town.

Brian Carlton speaks with Bob about the survey and the importance of residents sharing their thoughts on getting Burnie back on its feet.
