The Ringwood Chamber of Commerce exists to represent the needs of the Ringwood business community and tonight the organisation held its annual general meeting to elect committee members for the next twelve months.
Given the current economic uncertainty, the Ringwood Chamber of Commerce, with the support of Maroondah City Council, launched the Business – Local to Local initiative. This program aims to encourage business and the community to support our local commerce and employment.
Council has recently released its Commercial Precinct Plan for the Ringwood Central Activities District. This plan will establish a direction for developments along Maroondah Highway and Ringwood’s commercial precinct to ensure consistency and improved urban amenity. The Commercial Precinct Plan complements other policies, which aim to improve the walkability and accessibility of Ringwood.
Ringwood must become a vibrant and sustainable urban centre, that has a mixture of businesses and an environment that encourages walking and sustainable transport.
