CBD Activation

CBD Activation

Vibrant Kempsey CBD laneway

Did you know there are currently 33 empty shops in the Kempsey CBD area?

Let’s put our minds together and turn this around.

Join us for a community conversation about getting the CBD activated focusing on the key questions:

  1. How can we fill our empty shops?
  2. How can we activate an entrepreneurial culture in our community?

Whether you are currently running a shop in Kempsey, have an idea for a retail business or have an active interest in your CBD we’d like to hear your input.

Current initiatives in focus:

* Monthly CBD activation event – vote on when this could happen here
* Peppercorn rent for pop-up shops
* CBD map and marketing campaign
* Opportunity Hub – coming soon…
* Shop local cards
* Monthly networking – next activity 5pm, 5th June at Kempsey Health Food Shop
