New Council Announced - Cumberland Council

Community celebrates the best of local business

14 June 2013 – Press Release


The annual Holroyd City Local Business Awards, which will be announced in July, celebrate the best of local business.

Holroyd City Council is again supporting the popular and successful Awards in particular the Sustainability Award and the Community Safety Award.

Holroyd City Mayor Ross Grove said the Awards were an opportunity for local businesses to showcase their talent and achievements.

“Council is committed to building up our local economies and enhancing our town centres for business, residents and visitors,” he said.

“We recognise the hard working business people in community whether their business is big or small and their entrepreneurial spirit should be recognised as well as their contribution to job creation.

“Apart from encouraging new investment to the City, Council is doing all it can to support our existing local businesses to help them be as successful as possible.

“We help local businesses by cutting red tape, speeding up DA turnaround times and providing first-class customer service.

“Supporting the Local Business Awards is just one way we give recognition to the variety of businesses operating across our City.”

The Sustainability Award recognises the achievements of local businesses in practising and promoting sustainable practices that contribute to a more liveable and healthy city.

Sustainability is about more than just our natural environment, rather it is related to the quality of life in a community.

It means that the economic, social, environmental and cultural systems are providing a healthy, productive, meaningful life for all the community – present and future.

The Community Safety Award recognise organisations and groups which make substantial contributions to crime prevention and neighbourhood safety.

Mayor Grove said Holroyd City Council was committed to the creation of a safe environment and works closely with local community groups and government agencies on this issue through Council’s Community Safety Committee
