How did you fare? Flood impact on businesses sought


The opinion of local businesses is being sought by government authorities to identify ongoing needs as the clean-up from the natural disaster continues.

Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Mark Jamieson said he understood the impact the weather event has had on local businesses.

“Council is supporting and advocating for our local business community to ensure we can bounce back as a region,” Mayor Jamieson said.

“Our local businesses are the ones employing our friends and family, they help shape our local communities and are the economic backbone of our region.

“They need all the support they can get and we encourage the community to buy and support local businesses wherever possible.”

The Queensland Government’s Department of Employment, Small Business and Training (DESBT) would like to connect with business owners impacted by recent rainfall and flooding to identify what help they need during this challenging time. 

Businesses are being encouraged to complete the short survey to ensure the region has a voice in recovery support.

This survey will remain open as long as required to enable time for impacted businesses to respond.
