Profile my Business!

This program aims to bring awareness of the great services and products that are available within our Municipality, and stimulate local support for our local enterprises.

Every fortnight, a different local business is profiled in our E-bulletin, which is sent out to over 3,500 recipients. On the alternate week, relevant and interesting news on local business and events are shared with our audience.

What is the purpose of the Support Local Program?

Council adopted the Economic Development Strategy 2015 - 2020 at the end of 2014. One of the strategic goals in this strategy is to 'continue to facilitate business growth and prosperity, intrinsically linked to the wellbeing of the local community.'
