WHAT IS CITYPROM?
Cityprom Limited was formed in 1988 as an agreement between the Launceston City Council and a group of retailers to encourage the promotion and development of the central business district. Cityprom brings together city retailers, professional offices, and civic authorities to ensure the city centre remains the focal point of Launceston and the regional hub of Northern Tasmania.
We develop and deliver an annual calendar of activities designed to increase visitation, promote the attractiveness and vibrancy of our CBD and offer an engaging variety of experiences for the local community and visitors. Cityprom also plays an important role in assisting our members by offering business development opportunities which include workshops and forums specifically designed to meet business and market demands.
We also act as a lobby voice and advocates for business issues on behalf of our members; at times this may include local Council policies. We enjoy a strong working relationship with Launceston City Council and regularly act as a conduit between the business community and Council to communicate important information on issues such as such as smoking bans, on street dining policies and anti-social behaviour. Cityprom is totally independent of Council and is in constant contact with Council staff and Aldermen to lobby for the needs of the city. While we offer feedback to Council on issues affecting the CBD, we do not write Council policy or enforce Council by-laws.
So, don’t be shy…
We want to hear from you, our members, to make sure that we are assisting you the best we can. It is important to us that we receive any information or feedback regarding your business and how Cityprom can assist you now and in the future. If you have any questions, please contact us.
'To create vibe, visitation, and value in Launceston Central City'.
'A vibrant, friendly, diverse and welcoming city centre that brings visitors and locals together to enjoy a range of engaging experiences'.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I AM ELIGIBLE TO BE A MEMBER?
Cityprom is defined by a boundary area that was determined in 1988 when it was initially set up by a group of businessmen. If your business falls within the boundary area, you are automatically a Cityprom member. Membership fees are collected by the City of Launceston, based on the AAV rate. In 2014, this rate was 1.5%.
