Noosa Council has announced its first round of financial support measures to assist local businesses with cash flow, where possible. These measures include waivers and refunds for business charges including footpath dining permit fees, commercial permit fees, and event/wedding permit refunds.
Council has also moved to a weekly payment cycle for all local and regional suppliers to assist them with cash flow. These have now been announced and summarised on this media release.
Communications and Business Support
Council has established a dedicated Business and COVID-19 webpage outlining federal, state and local business support initiatives for small and medium-sized enterprises. Also included is industry-specific information outlining protocols for managing COVID-19 at your place of work.
This website aims to cut through the swathe of information available to provide the most relevant and accurate support for business.
Council is working with a local supplier to provide business continuity planning information tools, including a series of webinars and videos. They will also bring together a taskforce of business mentors and advisers to support this and will provide further information next week.
Advocacy - working closely with RDA Sunshine Coast & Tourism Noosa
Council and Tourism Noosa are working with Regional Development Australia to advocate on behalf of our business community to the Federal Government. They’re also working with our local Member of Parliament, Sandy Bolton, and Queensland
Government staff, on a range of support requirements for business.
