Business funding support

Businesses can apply for Council funds to assist them to diversify and expand and to encourage new businesses to start up.

Applications are invited two times a year, via an online application form in March and September.

There are a number of categories for businesses including:

  • start up / new
  • small
  • medium
  • large.

The assessment criteria for each category is set out in Council's Business Assistance(PDF, 118KB) policy.
