Whether you’re a new or established business, you’ll likely need one or more permits to operate. Council has a dedicated team to help guide your business through the application process. We know that there’s a lot to consider when starting or changing a business.
Our Business Concierge is here to support you through the application process.
How To Apply
- Before you apply, you need to contact our concierge team who will help you get the advice you need to apply for a permit.
- The Concierge will arrange a pre-application meeting if necessary.
- There is a single Business Application Form for you to apply for one or multiple permits – including Planning, Food, Health and Footpath Trading, and a questionnaire to help you understand which business permits you may need.
- Once you receive all your permits, we’ll help you celebrate by posting your business profile to our social media channels and offering other council services to help you grow and succeed.
