What We Do

Moreland City Council's Economic Development Branch is here to support the Moreland business community. We work with businesses and industry, local service agencies, neighbouring local Councils and State Government departments to facilitate better business connections and outcomes for Moreland. Our Economic Development Annual Report highlights our achievements over the past months

Here are some of the ways the Moreland Economic Development Branch works with, assists and engages the Moreland business community:

  • We look for ways to help Moreland retain and attract new industry, investment and jobs.
  • We provide a dedicated officer as 'first point of contact' for any queries in relation to major projects, key redevelopment sites and investment areas.
  • We work together with the Moreland City Council Places Branch and across Council to build relationships and partnerships in the Moreland community.
  • We facilitate business networking opportunities via our three business networks, the Moreland Business Network, the Moreland Business Women's Network and the Invest Moreland Network.
  • We provide an employment portal, Moreland Job Link, to promote local jobs and job containment.
  • We work in partnership with NORTH Link to create strategic partnerships and deliver projects across the northern Melbourne metropolitan region.
  • We connect Moreland business and industry to regional and State Government representatives via the Northern Business Achievement Awards quarterly business breakfast.
  • We work with smaller strip shopping areas across Moreland delivering Council's Shopping Strip Renewal Program.
  • We keep the Moreland business community informed on business programs, events and support services through regular communication via our monthly e-Newsletter, e-Xchange, our quarterly business publication, Exchange, social media and this website.
