SECURITY and lighting were two areas identified by stakeholders who met this week to discuss the revitalisation of Rockhampton's CBD.

About 35 property owners and tenants met with Rockhampton Regional Council representatives on Thursday to determine priorities and formulate an action plan.

Council planning manager Russell Claus said it was important there were open lines of communication.

"Overall, there has been a lot of enthusiasm. Just by bringing this group together we have a lot more conversation between people and that alone begins to help move things forward," Mr Claus said.

"There was not a lot of surprise in terms of some of the issues raised: safety, security, lighting, the number of empty store fronts," he said.

"We got some refinement on what the priority should be and what we want to move forward on."

Mr Claus said the meetings would be regular.

"We have limited resources so we need to focus on those things that will give us the best return on our investment," he said.
