Business Support and Development

If you are considering a move to the Tweed, opening a new enterprise or expanding an existing business in our shire, please talk to us.

Tweed Shire Council’s Economic Development team can discuss the benefits of its Business Investment Policy and introduce you to local stakeholders and other contacts to assist you as you get established.

Tweed Shire Council also offers a popular Development Assessment Panel service (known as DAP), where prior to lodging an application, you can receive technical advice in relation to your proposal.

Our teams will walk you through Council’s development application and assessment processes to set up your enterprise and get you on the right track to a successful move to the Tweed.


Business collaboration and networking is strong in the Tweed. Chambers of commerce, and tourism, agricultural and food industry groups provide regular platforms for connecting with other businesses and industry sectors. Council works closely with these groups and supports key activities through investment in marketing and by developing regional business development projects.


We can put you in touch with a number of regional business support organisations including the NSW Business Chamber, Regional Development Australia and the NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet.


The strong potential of the Tweed is already being realised by investors who see the benefit of aligning their brand to our region’s natural attributes and advantages.

Innovative, sustainable business and industry sectors are finding that the Tweed provides a perfect natural advantage for their ongoing growth and development. Extraordinary opportunities exist for businesses and investors who seek to align with our core values and attributes.

The Tweed offers business growth potential with access to land, water, infrastructure and transport, as well as proximity to key markets. There are many options to establish and grow your enterprise in the Tweed, so please contact Council’s Economic Development team to talk through your plans and explore the range of support available.
