With businesses in Lennox Head slowly returning to the new normal, the Lennox Chamber of Commerce is continuing with plans that began pre-pandemic.

Chamber president and mortgage broker Zain Peart, who has been heading up the group for the last three years, said that a few businesses closed temporarily, but they all came back with creative ways to stay open during the lockdown.

‘The Lennox community as a whole has shown great support for the businesses to help out as well.’

The aims of the chamber, which has an executive committee of seven, include advocating for a thriving and sustainable business environment in Lennox Head, encouraging people to shop locally, and promoting Lennox Head as a safe and attractive year-round tourist destination.

Mr Peart said that the chamber is now back to focussing on the main street upgrade.

‘The main street project is a renewal of the whole main street, including a new park and new toilet blocks. We are keeping the street two-way after the trial we held last year for one-way that did not work for Lennox.

‘The first plans are currently on display for the project.’

Mr Peart said that there will also be an update of the chamber, in line with Business NSW, and the town is looking forward to ‘visitors arriving and people returning’.

‘And things getting back to normal.’
