Business association is back in action

THE Northbridge Business Association is back in action after a two year hiatus.

Now called the Northbridge Bus-iness and Community Associa-tion, the organisation aims to make sure Northbridge people have a say in what happens to their area.

Association president Vincent Tan said he formed a group to seek compensation from the WA Government for losses to businesses caused by the North-bridge Tunnel works. From there the association was reborn.

“We found we needed a strong lobby group for the Northbridge area,” Mr Tan said.

Mr Tan said the addition of ‘community’ in the association’s title was not an attempt to take over Northbridge groups.

“We want to set up alliances with other groups in North-bridge,” he said. “When we have common interests we see an advantage in a united front.”

The group has secured a number of high profile members including former Perth Lord Mayor Chas Hopkins and former Deputy Lord Mayors Maria Torre and Evan Kakulas.

“We had something like eighty people turn up for our last meeting and many others couldn’t come because they had other commitments,” Mr Tan said.

“The turnout implies people feel they want to make their voices heard.”
