If you’re a small business owner in the Shire of Exmouth, 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 Exmouth has become one of 33 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:

  • working with the business community to develop a new signage policy
  • developing a one-stop-shop to helping small businesses with planning, building and health related enquires, including having a dedicated resource to assist with these matters
  • implementing a business attraction and retention strategy in partnership with the Exmouth Chamber of Commerce and the Gascoyne Development Commission.

Are you a business owner in the Shire of Exmouth?

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.

More than 127,000 small businesses - more than 56% of the State’s small businesses – are supported by their LGA through SBFLG.

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