Economic Development

The town has a range of initiatives to support local businesses. Our major support program is Claremont Town Centre..

What is Claremont Town Centre?

Claremont Town Centre (CTC) is a joint initiative between the town centre business community and the Town of Claremont to support local economic and social development. The project gains direction and support from the Claremont Town Centre Advisory Committee.

It is funded annually through a specified area rate for the area bordered as follows:

North of Stirling Highway, East of Stirling Road, South of Gugeri Street and West of Leura Avenue.

The key achievements of the Claremont Town Centre project include developing branding, a marketing strategy and an action plan for the Claremont town centre, which supports Claremont as the premier place to shop, dine and be entertained.

The project activities are implemented by the Claremont Town Centre Project Officer who can be contacted at 9285 4300 or ctc@claremont.wa.gov.au

Small Business Friendly Local Government

As part of our commitment to supporting our local business community, Town of Claremont is delighted to announce that we have signed the Small Business Friendly Local Governments Charter. This new initiative, developed by the Small Business Development Corporation (SBDC), formally recognises local governments that are demonstrating, or working towards, ‘better practice’ in engaging with their small business community. By signing the Charter we have committed to small businesses by: 
·         offering enhanced customer service
·         reducing red tape
·         making on-time payments
·         introducing other activities to improve the operating environment for small businesses in our area
The Town of Claremont is proud to be ‘small business friendly’.
