We are small business friendly

One of Council’s initiatives to support small business is the Small Business Friendly Councils (SBFC) Program. This program has been developed by the Office of the NSW Small Business Commissioner in partnership with the NSW Business Chamber, aiming to make councils small business-friendly.

The SBFC Program provides us with an opportunity to review our procedures and practices in dealing with small businesses, so that we can make improvements where needed, explore new initiatives, as well as share our successes with other participating councils.

Council is looking forward to working collaboratively with the Office of the NSW Small Business Commissioner, the NSW Business chamber, as well as over 50% of NSW councils to support and promote our local small businesses.

We are committed to making changes that can benefit our local small business owners and their employees. We know that ultimately this will benefit our whole community.
