Home-based business

A key outcome of the City of Unley's Economic Development Strategy is to support and build our home-based businesses. We recognise the many benefits home-based businesses bring to local communities, including:

  • People being around during the day, providing better surveillance within the community, leading to improved safety and sense of community

  • Support of brick and mortar businesses with a greater use of local shops and cafes (particularly for off-site meetings)

  • Reduced car use which is good for the environment.

We're calling for all home-based business owners and operators to register their details, so we can learn more about the home based businesses of Unley, and find out how we can help to grow this important segment.
