Part of our reinvigoration of Burnie is a plan to encourage local entrepreneurs, makers and artisans to take up 30 day rolling licenses to occupy empty shops in the Burnie CBD. Inspired by Renew Australia’s numerous retail reinvigoration projects across Australia, Business Northwest, supported by The Burnie City Council have partnered with Renew Australia to create Renew Burnie.

This program will allow emerging artisans, makers, businesses with innovative ideas to move from the dining room table into a shop front with high visibility within the Burnie CBD. The added bonus is the expertise that Business Northwest has across a range of industries, will be available for free, to support emerging business entrepreneurs realise their potential. The spaces will also provide an opportunity for collaboration across artisanal skills and experience. And a place to forge new connections and customers.

Expressions of interest will be open at the start of 2021. Connect with us on our Burnie 2.0 Facebook page to keep up to date with the latest information about this exciting program.
