More needed for Subi

ALTHOUGH customers and residents are already flocking to Subiaco, Subiaco Business Association president Carolena Boyd believes this can be improved.

“There is a huge market awareness of Subiaco and we have a great village atmosphere,” Ms Boyd said.

“But I want to see the image of Subiaco enhanced.

“Harmony needs to be created between the old businesses and the new ones drawn by the Subi Centro project.”

Ms Boyd believes commercial sites at the new Subi Centro development are selling faster than expected.

“I understand retail has been going strong there and the apartments on the site haven’t even opened yet,” she said.

Ms Boyd wants to increase the SBA’s numbers to create greater networking opportunities for local businesses.

She said Subiaco was not all about cafés and restaurants.

“It’s about encouraging all sorts of businesses,” Ms Boyd said.

“I would love to see some of the old-style businesses such as a butcher or a fishmonger coming back to Subiaco.”

Ms Boyd said having a Business Enterprise Centre was a boon to Subiaco.

“We often encourage people looking to start a business in Subiaco to use that as their first port of call,” she said.

“It gives all the good oil on business in Subiaco such as what’s here already and how they can fit into it.”

Security is another issue the SBA wants to address.

Ms Boyd said she had been involved with the SBA for the past seven years and in business in Subiaco for 10.
