Help shape the future of business in Port Stephens

At Port Stephens Council, we understand the benefits that a strong and thriving economy brings to our community and we are committed to creating an environment in which businesses can grow and prosper.

The Port Stephens Business Health Check survey was designed to provide a detailed review of business conditions across the region, insight into the needs of business and emerging trends and opportunities. The survey also provides a platform for business to communicate concerns, provide feedback and suggestions on growing the Port Stephens economy.

The survey was conducted over an 8 week period in 2018 attracting a total 206 valid responses. The results have helped inform actions within the new Economic Development & Tourism Strategy and will guide more informed decision making, leading to increasingly effective outcomes.


The survey will be repeated in 2020 to monitor conditions and emerging trends.
