20. The business growth trends in Gungahlin echo those across the whole of the ACT albeit with higher peaks in growth at 2014 and 2016. The growth rate of 1% from 2016 – 2017 remains above the ACT’s rate of 0.1%.

21. Analysis of business entry and exit data was used to inform changes in business growth over the period. This dataset was used as it provides a replicable and consistent data set to assess trends over time and to compare these trends with other locations.

22. Figure 11 of the report is illustrative of an establishing market rather than established market. Establishing markets can be prone to higher entry and exits as they mature due to their changeable and dynamic nature. Business by industry data suggests exits primarily occurred in the Administrative support services, Real Estate, Transport Postal and Warehousing and wholesale trade.

23. No.

24. Aspects of a future review are to be determined.

25. The Minister reported back on this issue to the Legislative Assembly on 20 September 2018.

26. The ACT Government funds the Light Rail Business Link program to support businesses. We always welcome feedback from local businesses about this report, and any other issue, at any time.

27. Findings from the Gungahlin report will be considered during the delivery of future ACT Government projects, noting each project must address site and local issues.
