Council's Place in Business

Through the Local Government Act, Hindmarsh Shire Council are responsible for many local laws and activities along with in many cases insuring local business etc are abiding by State and Federal laws.

It is important to discuss your business plans with Council who can provide advice and assistance in relation to aspects such as:

  • Planning zones and permits
  • Building permits
  • Food and Environmental health and safety
  • Licencing
  • Signage and Street Furniture

Importantly we can help ensure all things are covered and can highlight any potential issues early in your business planning process.

It is vitally important to discuss your business plans with Council at the earliest opportunity.

If any potential issues or concerns are raised by your business proposal it is best to know these from the start and work through them rather than realising them shortly before opening your business.
