Last week the City of Launceston received a report examining the challenges and opportunities for retail in the Launceston CBD.
The 'Shopping in the City' report was developed by Dr Louise Grimmer from the UTAS School of Business. It features several recommendations for the council, which include increasing food options in the Brisbane Street Mall, as well as improving the aesthetic of vacant shops.
Listen as Launceston Mayor Albert Van Zetten joins Rick Fontyn to discuss the report and the future of our city.
