Retail Precinct Audits

Every year approximately 3,000 ground floor businesses are visited across 12 retail precincts in Yarra as part of an annual research program to incorporate information into Yarra’s Geographic Information System (GIS).

Details on the type and name of businesses occupying retail premises are uploaded into GIS to enable year on year trend analysis on business mix and vacancy rates.

Insights on each precinct have been compiled into two page infographic flyers called Precinct Pulse. This information can be helpful to local businesses or people thinking of starting a business in Yarra. You can download these at the links below.

There is more data about Yarra at our policy and research page.
