Support for Business & Industry

Support for industry and business through local and regional planning, services provided by council and advocacy to other levels of government is critical. Our many businesses and industries sustain our community, our economy, our environment. Strong and effective economic development are critical as are regional relationships and the ability to gain funding out of State and Federal Government. Council plays a critical role in ensuring Yarra Ranges has a voice and is seen as a key player in many industry sectors.

We have a very diverse local small business community with hundreds like myself who operate businesses, often from home. Support for good telecommunications is a key step in this as it local and regional plans and strategy that include and plan for the future of all industries within our shire. I will also advocate for improved planning processes that do not drive industry out of the area or prevent current operators from operating or growing their businesses.
