Canberra should be open for business

Canberra needs to be open for business. The Government should be encouraging economic development through a competitive tax system, comprehensible planning and timely decision making.

At the moment, the lack of certainty in the planning system and out-of-date noise rules creates uncertainty and a lack of confidence, especially in the hospitality and entertainment industry.

The Government needs to value and respect long-standing businesses that have contributed to our city for years. We also need clear guidelines that support and encourage new businesses.

The Canberra Liberals support a vibrant nightlife and investment in the City.
