Night time Economy Strategy for the City of Logan

Creating a city renowned for its vibrancy, culture, opportunity and safety and a place of choice to work, live and visit is a high priority for Council. A key element towards achieving this is building a thriving night time economy (NTE).

What is the night-time economy?

When we think about ‘the economy’, we usually think of what happens during daylight hours (6:00am to 6:00pm). However, the economy doesn’t stop at night and neither do vibrant cities.

The NTE consists of all non-domestic activities which take place as the traditional ‘business day’ ends – between the hours of 6:00pm and 6:00am.

At night, places take on a different pace, function and atmosphere. These changing dynamics create more business and entertainment opportunities but also more community needs. A NTE Strategy is required to maximise these opportunities while preserving community interests.

Project status

Logan City Council is looking at ways to create more active places for people at night and help businesses extend their productivity into the night.

The Night Time Economy Strategy (PDF 23 MB) for the City of Logan details ways for Council to plan better places for businesses, services and the community after dark, including:

  • enhancing places with more things to do and see
  • improving access and safety to places in the evening
  • extending the productivity of Logan businesses into the night.
