Glenferrie Road, Malvern

Stonnington is home to approximately 27 retail locations and precincts, from small clusters of local shops to some of Australia's most famous shopping strips.

Starting a business is an exciting time and we are here to help you understand what permits and approvals you need. To make this as straight forward as possible, we’ve streamlined the application process for people to start, grow or change a business in Stonnington.

Working with Small Business Victoria, we have met with business owners who have recently gone through the process to review their experience and introduce a new business concierge service.

If you are starting, growing or changing a business and are unsure about what permits you require, complete our small business self assessment tool to determine whether a permit is required and learn about the support provided by our business concierge service.

People who have been through the process previously or know the permits they will require will be able to lodge applications themselves. Our Business Permit Applications Guidelines may be useful when preparing or submitting your application.
