Lobbying & Development
One of the areas that we represent our members on is the disproportionate amount of social infrastructure in the city centre. This does a disservice both to the people who need assistance and to the business community. It has also been proven that that the location of social infrastructure can have a negative impact on inward investment. We have raised this point at many levels and will continue to campaign for positive action. We have had success in the past with our opposition of the Bridge Project Prisoner Rehabilitation Centre which was proposed for Wolfe Tone Square. We also made submissions for the Begging Legislation and our suggestion that the organisation of begging be considered a crime was included in the revised legislation.
