How can we make Gold Coast’s CBD even better?

Southport, the Gold Coast’s central business district, is “more than a city centre; it’s a dynamic downtown of opportunity that is brimming with opportunity,” says Councillor Dawn Crichlow.

The Councillor made the comments as she launched the city’s CBD Program 2025, which is asking for our feedback on ways that the Council can make Southport a “globally competitive CBD” – through encouraging economic growth and investment, connecting the CBD to the Broadwater, embedding smart technology, and embracing the area’s outdoor lifestyle.

“Whether you’re studying, making a mark in business or indulging in one of our many restaurants, our CBD is a melting pot of colourful stories and characters,” said Councillor Crichlow.


“The program will deliver exciting projects, events and opportunities for businesses, residents and students in the area and in the long term create economic certainty for our CBD.”
