The Town has spent the last few months researching and writing a whole new business support strategy. And one of the things to come from this research has been a discussion paper on Localism. Localism is associated with a range of ideas from economic, social and other perspectives, including: buying local, locally produced food, local business investment, local education, local culture and stories and local entrepreneurship.
For the Town of Bassendean, localism will be what the local community decides it will be. You can read the whole discussion paper here.
The Town is seeking out local groups and organisations in the area like the Bassendean Business Association to develop this further and to really make it shine in 2018.
