Council advice and support

Our business concierge team are here to help you. Our team of experts will answer questions, connect you with a business mentor or provide you with training and networking opportunities.

The path to opening a business is unique for everyone, so talk to us to get the confidence and support that you need. Start here with our business self assessment tool and we will help you any way we can!

Permit support

Our team can now support and guide you through the permit application process. We can help with:

  • Initial business idea discussion to identify which permits you are likely to need
  • Pre-application meeting

If required, we will organise a meeting where you can talk to all the departments at council involved in your permit planning so that you can receive streamlined and strategic advice.

Visit our planning and permits page for further information.

Destination marketing

We conduct destination marketing for Mount Alexander Shire to showcase what is on offer here and encourage visitation. We have tourism marketing opportunities and tourism development support to assist your business to reach these visitors.

If you want to learn more about marketing initiatives and memberships contact our tourism team via email.

We provide support to our arts, culture and creative industries through the Economy and Culture team, in recognition of their importance to our economic landscape.
