How we Support Business in the Shire

The Economic & Business Development unit is Bellingen Shire Council’s link to the business community.

We work closely with existing and new business operators to create a strong and diverse local economy, generate tourism opportunities for the Shire and increase local employment opportunities.

How we can help you

If you’re starting a business or want to develop or promote your existing business, we can help by:

  • providing information and data on the local economy
  • helping you make sense of regulatory requirements and putting you in touch with the right person at Council
  • connecting you with other government agencies that provide funding to businesses
  • providing contact details for local business networks and advisory services
  • letting you know about upcoming events and local investment and development opportunities
