Our business concierge service

Navigating government can be challenging. You may need to engage with different City of Ballarat departments when starting or operating your business. We have established the Business Concierge service to help you through this process.

If you believe setting up your business may require multiple permits, or if you are new to the permit’s approvals process the Business Concierge will provide support through the application process.
