Council Services for Business

On this page you'll find quick links to all the services we provide that businesses and business people need to use from time to time.

Start a business

We love new businesses coming to the Coromandel. Let us know how we can help you set up.

If you are considering starting a new business, we offer licensing and resource management information to help you get started. 

Starting a new business from home or a small business like hairdressing can be difficult if you don't know what you need to do.

We can provide you with specific information for things like busking or setting up a mobile food business, licensing applications and fees to help you start your business the right way with the right consents.

The type of activity or business you plan to open will determine the type of licence and or permit you will need.

Confused? Drop us a line.


Building, planning and consents

In this section you'll find everything you need to know about building and resource consents and how to apply for them, our development contributions policy and how to get a LIM.

This information can be quite hard going and we've tried our best to explain it all in plain English, so if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us.

Contact our Economic Development Team for a confidential chat. Phone 07 868 0200.
