Goolwa Main Streets Business Think Tank Workshop – July 2019

Alexandrina Council recently conducted a pilot main streets business survey in Goolwa to gain a clearer understanding of the challenges and opportunities that face the Goolwa Business Community.

The survey was followed up with a facilitated workshop with presentations on the economic and demographic characteristics of the Alexandrina Council region, and the Goolwa main streets business survey results. A SWOT analysis was conducted and a number of great ideas were shared including suggestions for new events.

This ID presentation and summaries of the business survey and SWOT analysis and the Goolwa Business Think Tank Summary can be found below.

In the future, Council will be extending a business survey to include the whole Alexandrina Council region and will plan more economic development activities.
