If you’re one of the 1,953 small business owners in the Shire of Augusta-Margaret River, you’re set to benefit from the Shire’s commitment to our Small Business Friendly Local Government (SBFLG) initiative.

By signing the SBFLG charter, the Shire of Augusta-Margaret River has become one of 36 local government authorities (LGAs) to commit to working with, and supporting, small business owners.

As part of the Shire’s commitment to supporting small businesses, they will be:

  • establishing a Sustainable Economy Advisory Committee to inform the development of an economic strategy and provide advice to council on broader economic issues and ideas
  • simplifying processes and forms for submitting quotes and tenders
  • running business workshops

Are you a business owner in the Shire of Augusta-Margaret River?

Contact the Shire if you’d like to find out more about the support available to local businesses or to provide feedback on the support you’d like to see them provide.

About the SBFLG program

The SBFLG initiative was developed to recognise the LGAs that are committed to actively supporting small businesses in their local area.

By signing up to the initiative, LGAs agree to identify, improve and review key strategies in order to deliver better services and build closer relationships with their local small businesses.

By signing the SBFLG charter, the City of Fremantle has become one of 34 local government authorities (LGAs) to commit to working with, and supporting, small business owners.

Find out more about the SBFLG program, and whether your LGA has signed the charter and details of their commitments to local small businesses.
