A review has been undertaken of the Noosa Council 2022-23 draft budget documents published for community consultation on 23 May 2022.

The purpose of the review was to assess the potential positive and negative impacts of the budget on local businesses, ratepayers and the broader Noosa community. The Chamber is cognisant of the current challenges facing Noosa businesses including stagnant economic growth, supply chain and resourcing pressures, inflationary pressures in addition to increasing interest rates.

The decisions made by Councillors when adopting the budget can have significant implications for business operators, residents and ratepayers, and the Chamber has a responsibility to advocate where possible to maximise benefits and minimise impacts for its members and the broader Noosa community.
