Night Time Economy Strategy

Logan City Council’s Night Time Economy Strategy is a framework to grow our city’s night time economy through practical actions to promote a geographical spread of diverse evening activity, encourage widespread community participation, and improve safety, amenity, social and economic vitality of our city at night.

The night time economy consists of all non-domestic activities which take place as the traditional ‘business day’ ends – between the hours of 6pm and 6am. Each phase has unique dynamics and community needs. The focus of this strategy will be on the evening economy, between 6pm and 9pm, but does not exclude activities beyond this time of the night.

Council has adopted a place-based approach to developing our city’s centres and has been implementing a range of targeted policies, projects and programs to make these places great for everyone during the day and night.

Some of the key actions proposed to be implemented include

  • Facade Improvement Program
  • Investment Attraction Incentive Fund
  • Council fee reductions (Development Applications, Infrastructure charges, Licences etc.).
  • Footpath dining incentives
  • Outdoor furniture trials
  • Strategic land acquisition program
  • Logan Plan: As part of the planning scheme review to activating neighbourhood centres a number of changes were endorsed by Council for implementation as part of the new planning scheme.
  • Review of acoustic requirements.
  • Review of the outdoor dining policy to simplify the process and encourage participating of food and drink businesses to make use of the Outdoor Dining Incentive policy.
  • Place Activations
    • Beenleigh Movie Night
    • Tastes of Croydon (Logan Central)
    • Slacks Creek Projector
