Proud to be a Small Business Friendly Council

The Small Biz Bus is an initiative of the Office of the NSW Small Business Commissioner.  The role of the Office of the Small Business Commissioner is to support the sustainability of small businesses in NSW.

Last year Cessnock City Council signed on to the Commissioner’s Small Business Friendly Councils program.  We joined 75 local councils across NSW in a commitment to better engage with small businesses in the local government area.

Established in 2014, the program is a first for Australia, giving councils willing to make small business a priority the opportunity to be recognised for their commitment.

“We are proud to call ourselves ‘small business friendly’ as part of this state-wide initiative,” said Council’s General Manager Stephen Glen.

Council has been meeting its commitment by better engaging with small businesses in a number of ways, primarily through Advance Cessnock City initiatives and activities.   These include

  • Business Capability Study
  • Gap Analysis
  • Business Investment and Attraction Program
  • Flood impact study
  • Networking events
  • Business leadership workshops
  • Business of the Week profile series on Advance Cessnock City’s website
