CBD FAQs

 

How will I access my business or residence located in the CBD?

We are working through an accreditation process to determine the access needs of residents and businesses within the designated CBD event precinct to ensure that there is as minimal impact as possible. Following this accreditation we will develop a Business and Resident Access Plan, which will be communicated to stakeholders and the community.
