Growing Business in Gunnedah

Gunnedah Shire Council will continue a long tradition of supporting local businesses with a total of $17,380 in funding through Round One of the 2023/24 Business Partner Program.

Chair of the Business Partner Advisory Group Cr Colleen Fuller said Council was proud of its Business Partner Program which aims to not only support current, but also stimulate new business in the Gunnedah Shire.

“Gunnedah’s reputation as a regional township is continuing to grow as a result of the many great businesses that have and are continuing to set up here. Increasingly, we are becoming a go-to destination in this part of NSW for people seeking quality business and lifestyle services,” she said.

“As a council we will continue to be as proactive as possible in supporting and encouraging growth of our businesses.”
