Our priority is to ensure the local business community feels supported, is well informed and knows where and how to access advice, financial support and practical resources. Council has developed a business support plan and will continue to look at ways to support local businesses and scale-up our responses, where necessary.

We aspire to create a thriving and vibrant local economy where traditional and new industries are supported and local career, training and education opportunities are expanded.
We share regional economic research and point you towards business grants, networking, business programs and awards that might open up new opportunities, including doing business with Council.
