 Inner West Council will work with local business chambers to create the Inner West’s first comprehensive database of local business owners. Council aims to use the information to strengthen ties within the business community, and help to boost the local economy.

Inner West Mayor Darcy Byrne said that he had initiated a partnership between Council’s Strategic Planning Economic Development Unit and local business chambers to prepare a comprehensive data base of local business operators.

“We want our chambers of commerce to have a larger membership base and a stronger voice in advocating for local businesses,” he said.

“A full picture of the local business operators and how to contact them will be a massive leg up in connecting council, the chambers and all of the diverse businesses we have in the inner west.

“We will use it to promote and support business development opportunities and the chambers can use it to help recruit new members.

“There is always greater strength in numbers.”

The project will support business engagement on various projects and developing a better understanding of impediments to undertaking business in the Inner West. The data base will be the first of its kind for the Inner West LGA.

The chambers and associations involved are:

  • Ashfield Business Chamber
  • Balmain & Rozelle Business Chamber
  • Haberfield Business Chamber
  • Leichhardt & Annandale Business Chamber
  • Marrickville Chamber of Commerce
  • Newtown Precinct Business Association
  • Inner West Asian Business Association
