Livingstone Shire Council joined the Queensland Small Business Friendly Program in May 2023. Being small business friendly means recognising and considering small businesses as an important customer, recipient, and supplier to our community, services and/or organisational activities. We are committed to creating tangible and practical improvements and outcomes aimed at enhancing the operating environment for our small businesses. We want our small businesses to have the opportunities they need to thrive.

While Council has already run a number of programs and workshops to support our local economy, we have developed this short survey to collect invaluable feedback from our small businesses. Your responses will help us to further understand the types of small businesses we have in our community, what constraints you are faced with and how we can do more to support business operations now and into the future.
