Apart from the cinema, which of course almost everyone would love to see, the majority of the popular ideas are around night entertainment and places to go to eat and drink during the day and in the evening. At WynnumCentral, we’ve always thought Bay Terrace would make a great entertainment district, as was suggested in one of the Wynnum Chamber’s suggested plans for Wynnum CBD.

We’d be very interested to hear your thoughts – let us know in the comments below.

PS We’re keeping the survey open, since we’d like to hit a round number of 500 responses, so if you haven’t completed it please feel free to do so.

PPS WynnumCentral’s David Bateson was interviewed recently by ABC612 Radio Brisbane’s Matt Macklin on Spencer Howson’s breakfast show about the stickers that have appeared on the windows of empty shops in Wynnum. Hear what he had to say…
