The Tasmanian Chamber of Commerce and Industry has backed Devonport City Council’s LIVING CITY initiative.

TCCI, Chief Executive, Michael Bailey, said the City of Devonport is to be congratulated for being bold and brave.

“The North West Coast is depressed and the Council has shown that it is prepared to step out and engage the community in looking at a bright future,” said Mr Bailey.

“It is this type of positive thinking that is needed right now in Tasmania when the future is uncertain and I have been in discussions with the Devonport Chamber of Commerce how we can work together for the betterment of the region.

“The TCCI is encouraged by the Council launching a well thought through list of principles that mean LIVING CITY won’t just be a project for Devonport, but for the entire region and it makes sense and appears achievable.

“Council has begun an extensive community engagement program to involve the residents and the region in progressing towards the next steps and it’s this type of attitude that is needed and the TCCI encourages as many people as possible to participate in the engagement and make your thoughts know by completing a survey,” added Mr Bailey.
