Shopper surveys have already been completed in Lithgow, Portland and Wallerawang.

“The community ‘drop-in’ will allow members of the community to submit their own personal ideas as to what they would like to see changed/improved regarding retail in Lithgow, Portland and Wallerawang”, continued the Mayor.

Workshop details are as follows:

            Date: Tuesday  8 December
            Venue: Lithgow Library, Main Street
            Time: 4pm – 6pm

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the community for their ongoing support. We hope the community will again support this initiative by sparing a few minutes to provide their own practical suggestions for this Business and Retail Strategy’, concluded the Mayor.
