Our new Economic Development and Tourism Plan will guide our actions over the coming years to positively influence economic development in Boroondara and make sure it remains a great place for our community to live, work, study and play.

We're currently collecting data to understand how Council can best support businesses and traders to thrive, now and into the future.

If you're a business or trader in Boroondara, have your say in our online survey before 22 October 2021. You'll go in the draw to win one of 3 x $100 vouchers to spend at a local independent business listed on the Love Local Life website.
