Whether you’re wanting to find a job, look for community services, or pay your rates we have a wealth of information on living in the Blue Mountains. In this section you can also find information on animals, buying and selling property and waste and recycling.
We value businesses that support the needs of our community. Our City’s diverse range of villages and towns offer businesses a variety of environments in which to operate. Whether you’re interested in learning about what’s driving economic development, finding the right permit, or submitting a tender or quote, you’ll find tools and resources here.
