Local economies have been hit hard by the impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19) – particularly the retail, hospitality and creative industries of the inner suburbs and city. The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has also changed how we work and access services and products. We are keen to understand more about these changes, and what a strong recovery looks like locally.
