We back business to grow and thrive.

Our strategic vision is for a thriving and diverse business economy. Eurobodalla Shire Council understands that our lifestyle and future prosperity depends on our businesses and the people that own, run and work in them. Entrepreneurs, innovators and startups are welcome in Eurobodalla, and Council has dedicated and experienced business development specialists on hand to help you.

We can work with you as you bring your new or existing business or venture to fruition. The information contained in resources such as our Business Development Strategic Plan can help orientate you to our Shire and its future, and help you identify niches and opportunities. Our planning team is happy to consult with you early on, to ensure your project has the tools and information needed to understand and meet local government requirements.

As well as enjoying an unsurpassed life-style and lower cost of doing business, locating in Eurobodalla qualifies many businesses for additional regional grant funding opportunities they would not have enjoyed in larger centres. Our business team actively monitor all business grants, connect business to appropriate funding, and help facilitate grant applications. In addition, Council keeps a register of vacant land, empty premises and trading businesses for sale, to help you with your research and planning.

There are several specific local organisations and bodies tasked by government with assisting businesses in Eurobodalla Shire. These are modern, linked-in, and offer a myriad of services and advice, the majority of which are free or low cost. Council works with these organisations to provide and sponsor regular businesses focused events, such as training, ‘how to’s’ and guest speakers.

Our Business and Tourism Chambers are active and thriving, and are another good starting point for anyone considering investing here.
