Starting or Growing Your Business

Deciding to start or growing your business is an exciting step and Council has a dedicated team at Baw Baw to support and guide you through this process. We know there is a lot to consider when starting or growing your business, and we are here to ensure you get all the information you need.

Whether you’re a new or established business, you’ll need one or more permits to operate, and our Business Approvals Support Team is here to make this happen and will support you at each stage of the process.

Our team will provide you with a single point of contact, a member of our team who is committed to supporting your business and can help you get all the advice you need before you apply for a permit. This includes liaising with all the teams inside Council to ensure you are getting expert advice and supporting your business the whole way through the permit approval process. Afterwards, we can check in and put you in touch with any of the resources we have available to support your business as it goes from strength to strength!

You can reach out to our Business Approvals Support Team using this form, via live chat, email or call during business hours on 1300 BAW BAW.
