Launceston is missing out on business because of a lack of infrastructure and development, according to the Executive Officer of the Launceston Chamber of Commerce, Neil Grose.

Last week a report by the Coordinator-General’s Office revealed that despite the numerous projects in development, it still won’t be enough to cope with demand in Launceston

Mr Grose speaks with Brian Carlton about the issues, and says that Launceston shouldn’t be afraid to say ‘yes’ to developments.
