Business permits and licences

Starting a business often requires permits and licences such as planning permits or food and health registrations. Our small business office has a dedicated officer to help you get started.

The Small Business Officer will:

  • be your single point of contact with Council
  • will work with you to understand your business vision
  • arrange a face to face meeting with our planners, engineers and environmental health officers
  • help guide you through the permit application process
