Push For Google, Amazon To Come To Cessnock

There's an ambitious push to bring global giants Google and Amazon to Cessnock.

It follows reports Google is looking for a new Australian headquarters, while Amazon is after locations for Australian warehouses.

Councillor Jay Suvaal will raise the idea at Wednesday's council meeting, urging the city to write to Google and Amazon to consider Cessnock,

He believes Cessnock ticks all the boxes.

"We have great transport connections, industrial land for warehousing that would suit Amazon," he said.

"There are plenty of places their staff could live and it's much cheaper than in Sydney."

"It's about showing that we're open for business and that we want businesses to look at Cessnock."
