Spend time now preparing to get your application right. Providing the right information and using the professional assistance of a quality draftsperson or planning consultant (if required) can save time on the assessment and may get your business trading sooner.
What is your business idea?
Start by writing down what you know about your business project. You'll need to be able to describe the type of business you want to set up and how it will operate in some detail.
What permits do I need?
Permit support meeting
If you need multiple permits, our Economic Development team can arrange a meeting with you and the relevant Council departments to get advice on what information you'll need to include in your application. Simply complete the Business Permit Checklist (above) and we'll contact you to arrange a meeting. These meetings are free.
You are ready to apply!
Once you have your business proposal, know which permits you need to apply for and what information you need to provide, you're ready to apply.
