Supporting local business

What is the Claremont Town Centre Project?

The Claremont Town Centre (CTC) project is a joint initiative between the town centre business community and the Town of Claremont to support local economic and social development.

The project gains direction and support from the Claremont Town Centre Advisory Committee, which is made up of five CTC business representatives and four Council representatives. 

It is funded annually through a specified area rate for commercial properties located within the area bordered by north of Stirling Highway, east of Stirling Road, south of Gugeri Street and west of Leura Avenue.

The key objectives of the project include increasing visibility and brand awareness of the CTC through the development and delivery of marketing campaigns, programs and events, which supports Claremont as the premier place to shop, dine and be entertained.

Project activities are implemented by the Claremont Town Centre Marketing Manager who can be contacted at 9285 4300 or ctc@claremont.wa.gov.au
