Whitsunday Regional Council, as a facilitator and promoter of economic development, promotes a ‘can-do’ attitude to support development of local business infrastructure for retail, industrial and community facilities. As the Whitsunday Region’s economy develops it will require ongoing business establishment, growth and investment to be sustained.
Local enterprise presents opportunities for new investment, and additional investment from business and industry already located in the Whitsunday Region is encouraged.
Council facilitates and supports investment and business establishment and growth, providing readily-available information on the status of the regional economy, industry trends and prospects and locations for investment, including the availability of commercial and industrial land.
Council can also help to facilitate the development of business start-ups and small to medium-sized businesses in the region through the identification of business assistance programs on offer from State and Federal Government agencies.
