During the 2016 Local Council election process each candidate for the two local Divisions, 13 and 14, and the Mayoral candidates, were offered the opportunity to put their platform for election into 500 words for posting on our website. Sadly some didn’t respond and perhaps that was a measure of their hopes of being elected.

The AGM was held in February.

As the election approaches who will represent your views and needs and best articulate what you want to see happen to our community for the next four year?

It’s time to have your say on the future extension of light rail for the southern Gold Coast.

Connecting Southern Gold Coast (CSGC) is calling for local small business owners to join a subsidised business workshop training program to enhance their business skills, commencing in November.

Several of the city’s Chambers of Commerce have come out in support of the installation of an Instrument Landing System (ILS) at Gold Coast Airport.

Representing the business community in regions under the proposed ILS flight path, the Southern Gold Coast, Creek to Creek and Gold Coast Central Chambers of Commerce have written letters to the Airport supporting the installation of an ILS.

On Friday May 8th a number of the Creek to Creek Committee members were invited to join a group of other interested parties to discuss and workshop the concepts being considered for the development of the Palm Beach commercial zone. Ian Grace and Chris Ward joined Hilary Jacobs at this important developmental meeting.

Early in May, our new President, Hilary Jacobs and re-elected Vice President, Chris Ward, took time out to meet with Mayor Tom Tate at his offices in Southport. The meeting was a great success with the new President introducing herself and acquainting the Mayor with the issues which the Chamber sees as vital to the growth of the Creek to Creek catchment.

Recently a programme for Skilling Queenslanders was announced by the Premier. The aim to help long term unemployed and younger people to find a path to meaningful work.
