ACTING ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT MANAGER's REPORT

 

Council has received an application under the Events Assistance Program for the 2013/14 financial year.

 

For the ED&T Committee’s consideration, the application is:

 

Application

 

Organisation:

Brand Orange Pty Ltd

Event:

2014 Banjo Paterson Festival – celebrating 150 years.

Date:

Friday 7 February till Monday 17 February 2014

Requested Amount:

$5,000

To be funded for:

Contribution towards marketing, advertising and promotion costs.

Description of the event:

The Festival (formally Slow Summer) is a 10-day festival staged throughout the Orange, Cabonne and Blayney regions. Attracting visitors from across regional NSW and key Sydney markets, the Banjo Paterson Festival is a festival for the entire family. The 2014 festival will be celebrating 150 years of Banjo Paterson. The theme for 2014 is Waltzing Matilda.

 

Cabonne Council will be provided with the following opportunities as part of this event:

·    The Cabonne Country Logo will be displayed on any print and TV advertising. This will include the 10,000 Banjo Paterson Festival Programs.

·    There will be an opportunity for Cabonne to display banners or other promotional material at any key events organised by Brand Orange.

 

Out of 46 separate events and activities planned for the Festival, there will be 13 held in the Cabonne Shire or conducted by Cabonne organisations. Brand Orange expects that these events will attract several hundred visitors and locals to the Cabonne Shire.

 

One specific event that heavily involves the Cabonne Shire during the Festival is the Banjo Paterson Self Drive Historical Tour. This tour begins in Orange and includes the villages of Molong, Cumnock and Yeoval, particularly highlighting the Animals on Bikes Trail from Molong, through Cumnock to Yeoval, ending at the Banjo Paterson Museum in Yeoval.

 

Council’s Small Towns Development Group has written to Council seeking support for the production of brochures promoting the Banjo Paterson trail through Cabonne villages.

 

Assessment

 

The application meets all the grant criteria of the Events Assistance Program.

 

In 2013-14 Council provided $40,000 for the administration of the Events Assistance Program. To date, $18,100 has already been allocated for the 2013/14 financial year.

 

Council has contributed $15,000 towards Brand Orange events in the 2013/14 financial year. This includes, Wine Week, Frost Fest and Taste Orange @ Sydney.

 

 

ITEM 5 - EVENTS ASSISTANCE FUNDING FOR 2014 CANOWINDRA CHALLENGE AND AUSTRALIAN HOT AIR BALLOON CHAMPIONSHIPS

REPORT IN BRIEF

 

Reason For Report

For the Economic Development and Tourism Committee to consider funding options to provide assistance to the 2014 Canowindra Challenge ballooning event.

Policy Implications

NIL

$15,000 from the Events Assistance Program

Recommendation

 

THAT Council provide funding of $15,000 to the 2014 Canowindra Challenge and Australian Hot Air Balloon Championships from the Events Assistance Program to be used for promotional and advertising purposes.

 

ACTING ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT MANAGER's REPORT

 

The organising committee for the 2013 Canowindra Challenge and Australian Hot Air Balloon Championships addressed the October ED&T Committee, providing an evaluation of the 2013 event and outlining plans for the 2014 championships from 22-27 April.

 

The 2013 event was a spectacular success, with 16,300 visitors estimated to have spent more than $1.5 million during the week-long festival.

 

Following the presentation the committee recommended that:

 

1) Council approve funding of $15,000 towards the 2014 Canowindra Challenge event.

 

2) A report be presented to the Economic Development & Tourism Committee outlining from where the funding is to be allocated.

 

Council has an Events Assistance Program to support local events, build visitation and generate investment.

 

An amount of $40,000 was provided in the 2013-14 Budget for this program. About $18,000 has been expended leaving about $22,000 in the fund.

 

In terms of visitor numbers, the Canowindra Challenge is the second largest event in Cabonne behind the Australian National Field Days, but provides the greatest visitor spend in Cabonne of any event.

 

The Canowindra Challenge meets all the criteria of the Events Assistance Program, which would appear to be the most appropriate source of funding for Council’s $15,000 assistance.

 

This was the case in 2013 when Council provided $15,000 from the Events Assistance Program

 

The other option is to fund the amount from the Promotion and Development Reserve, however this is generally accessed for an unexpected major event, such as a world championships, which had not been foreseen when Council’s 2013-14 Operational Plan was being developed.

 

The Committee should also be mindful that drawing on reserves will eventually deplete those reserves.

 

In addition to the monetary assistance, Council also provided the following support in 2013:

 

•        Assistance with event management;

•        Staff assistance at the Canowindra Visitor Information Centre;

•        Access to Council staff to answer inquiries;

•        Approval to close roads;

•        Provision of waste management facilities;

•        Provision of public toilets;

•        Fortnightly meetings with Council’s Economic Development and Tourism staff;

•        Support from Council’s Tourism Advisory Committee;

•        Promotion through Council’s What’s On calendar, website and publications; 

•        Assistance with media coverage.

GrantBlast

EDS Objectives 9.3 & 9.4

 

The next three-month edition (November/December/January) of GrantBlast was distributed in the first week of November. The current edition of this newsletter and previous editions of the newsletter are available on Council’s website and also on the Cabonne Country website.

 

As a result of this newsletter, the CBDO has received a number of enquiries about potential applications and has received a number of positive comments about the usefulness of this resource.

Small Business Friendly Councils Pilot Program

EDS Objectives 10.5, 11.1, 11.2 & 11.3

 

The Office of the NSW Small Business Commissioner, in partnership with the NSW Business Chamber, recently launched a new program called "Small Business Friendly Councils".

 

The Small Business Friendly Councils program aims to:

 

·    Recognise those councils implementing best practice initiatives for working with small businesses; and

·    Increase the number of councils in New South Wales working proactively to assist small businesses.

 

The program is the first of its kind in Australia, giving councils the opportunity to be formally recognised as 'Small Business Friendly'.

 

Four local councils are currently working with the Office of the NSW Small Business Commissioner to develop the program:

 

·    Lismore City Council

·    Boorowa Council

·    Tenterfield Shire Council

·    Parramatta City Council.

 

The participating councils are working closely with the Small Business Commissioner to develop a "Small Business Friendly Charter" and a diagnostic evaluation tool for councils.

 

The Small Business Friendly Charter will provide a set of benchmarks for councils to uphold during their interactions with small businesses while the diagnostic evaluation tool will allow councils to assess their performance against those benchmarks.

 

Councils that voluntarily commit to the Charter and complete the diagnostic evaluation will be officially recognised by the Office of the Small Business Commissioner with a "Small Business Friendly Councils" rating. 

 

It is anticipated the program will be rolled out to all interested councils in 2014 and all NSW councils will be invited to participate.

 

A further report will be submitted when councils are invited to take part in the program.

 

2013 Cabonne Daroo Business Awards

EDS Objective 11.2

 

The Cabonne Daroo Business Awards were announced at a gala dinner at the Canowindra Services and Citizens Club on Friday 1 November 2013.

 

The awards moved to a new people’s choice format this year, with clients and customers voting for their favourite businesses. This resulted in more than 300 businesses being nominated and just under 1000 votes for 56 finalists in 16 categories.

 

The Daroo Committee, Bruce Buchanan and his staff from the Central West BEC and a dedicated band of Canowindra community members worked very hard to make the event a success.

 

However, I want to particularly commend Council’s Community Business Development Officer Hannah Dunlop who co-ordinated the awards process and presentation night. This is basically a full-time job in the final months leading up the presentation dinner.

 

However this year Hannah was also responsible for the co-ordination of the Made in Cabonne pavilion at the Australian National Field Days, which were held only a week prior to the Daroo presentation dinner.

 

Hannah did an outstanding job on both projects.

Canowindra Challenge Inc was a finalist in the Events and Tourism Award and Yeoval’s Alf Cantrell was a finalist in the Regional Service Award.

The Mayor and Cr Walker represented Council at the awards dinner.

ACTING ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT MANAGER's REPORT

 

Australian National Field Days

TP Action: 1.1.3, 5.2.5

 

Council’s Made in Cabonne pavilion was a popular venue with visitors at the 2013 Australian National Field Days, particularly on Saturday 26 October. This was the first time in 15 years the field days have included a Saturday program and its success means it is almost certain to be repeated next year.

Numbers on the first two days were not high and traffic through the pavilion was not great, but field days organisers have estimated the Saturday crowd increased overall attendance by up to 20 per cent on 2012. However, official attendance numbers have not yet been released.

Twelve Cabonne small businesses joined Cabonne Council in the Made in Cabonne pavilion, which also included a display for next February’s Banjo Paterson Festival.

The administration and design of the pavilion was co-ordinated by Council’s Community Business Development Officer Hannah Dunlop and drew praise from many regular visitors who said it was the best the pavilion looked.

What’s On in Cabonne

TP Action: 2.1.1, 3.1.2

The November edition of “What’s on in Cabonne” will be presented to the ED&T Committee at the meeting.

 

Central NSW Tourism Update

TP Action: 5.2.2

Central NSW Tourism is considering a major regional food and wine promotional campaign.

 

The aim is to pool funds to attract matching funding from Destination NSW to create a one or two-year long destination appeal campaign based on the food and wine offering in Central NSW.

 

The minimum “buy-in” for Destination NSW funding is $50,000 and Central NSW has tentatively estimated a joint contribution from the region of about $175,000.

 

If it proceeds, the campaign would involve Local Government areas, wine associations, food groups, farmers markets and other associated businesses.

 

NSW Summer Tourism Campaign

TP Action: 5.2.2

The 2014 Canowindra Challenge and Australian Hot Air Ballooning Championships are among a select number of events to be featured in a

$2 million campaign to promote tourism throughout NSW over summer.

 

The campaign was announced after last month’s devastating bushfires badly affected several key tourism areas.

 

Entitled ‘Love Every Second’ and ‘It’s ON’, the promotions showcase the state’s best food and wine, shopping, entertainment, family fun, nature and outdoor experiences.

 

The campaign will appear across print, outdoor and digital media, including the 40-page, full colour magazine called Love Every Second in Sydney and NSW, inserted into 1.9 million newspapers across Australia and New Zealand.

 

In a NSW Government first, the Love Every Second in Sydney and NSW magazine is also available in a digital format that can be downloaded from the Apple News stand, allowing visitors from around the world to interact with the campaign from their iPad.

 

There are 96,564 businesses in NSW involved in tourism which directly and indirectly employ 257,000 people.

 

Age of Fishes Museum featured in The Australian

TP Action: 1.1.3, 5.2.5

The Age of Fishes Museum and Taste Canowindra were highlighted in a feature article in the weekend edition of The Australian newspaper on 26-27 October 2013.

 

The article was written by travel writer James Jeffrey, whose Cabonne itinerary was arranged by Council’s Tourism and Promotions Officer Lynne Hawkes.

 

Describing a motorhome tour of Central NSW, the author also visited Lake Canobolas, Orange, Cowra and Mudgee.
