Traders information

Our purpose is to build a cohesive community, whilst at the same time ensuring that the centre continues to be an economic hub. To assist us, funds are raised annually through a Special Rate Levy, whereby businesses in a selected precinct in Diamond Creek are charged an annual fee. This process is managed by Nillumbik Shire Council on a five-year cycle. The committee draws down on these funds to put back into our marketing and promotions. Our Association also has a constant dialogue with Council representatives, across the economic, transport and the public realm. All these areas of Council, and their decisions impact on the prosperity of the Diamond Creek community, the place where we choose to work, it is our livelihood so we engage with them whenever possible.
