A one-stop online shop for businesses in the Cessnock local government area has been launched this week.
Advance Cessnock City is a strategic partnership between Cessnock City Council, all local chambers of commerce and industry organisations across the region.
Council’s Economic Development Manager Jane Holdsworth said the new website was an important tool for the local business community and key economic development stakeholders.
“Instead of having to look around multiple websites for information, local businesses can now find links to all of the information they need in the one place,” Jane said.
The new website is a hub for important business news, local business profiles and a calendar of business-related dates and events.
Jane said weekly business profiles will showcase the diverse economic base of the Cessnock local government area.
“Our region’s visitor economy is catered to by a well-established tourism hospitality and accommodation sector; however we also have strong health, education, professional services, construction, manufacturing and retail sectors which all contribute to our local economy.”
Council encourages local businesses to visit www.advancecessnockcity.com.au and sign up for a weekly e-News Monitor and to register for a free business profile today.
Local government has been in operation in the Cessnock area since 1906 when the Shire of Cessnock held its first meeting. During the following years there were several amalgamations and splits as new Shires were formed and reshaped until Cessnock was declared a City in 1958.
Cessnock City Council provides a diverse range of services and facilities for the residents of the LGA as well as visitors to the area.
