Revitalising Wimmera's High Streets
Small business pulse check project
The Wimmera Development Association (WDA) commissioned a work with Federation University’s Future Regions Research Centre (Horsham Hub) in 2021/2022 to check in with small businesses across 25 towns in the Wimmera Southern Mallee. The work focused on businesses operating in the retail, tourism, accommodation, and transport spaces.
The focus of the work has been to understand what actions would help support small businesses in the region to prosper in place.
The project provides a critical evidence base about the opportunities and challenges facing small businesses in individual townships across our region, and individualized insight into what is needed to support the revitalization of the businesses in our region.
The report outlines the challenges and proposed actions to support local small businesses to ensure future regional growth and prosperity.
