Working Together

Key Partnerships

Working together and partnering with key organisations is vital to the business and economic development of the City of Melville's local and regional economy.

The City is working toward providing more opportunities for growth into the future.

  • As one of the fastest growing and diverse regions of Western Australia, the South West Metropolitan Region of Perth offers many exciting business development and lifestyle opportunities.

    The South West Group of Local Authorities works to capitalise on these opportunities and to promote sustainable economic growth for the benefit of local communities.

    Representing the Cities of Cockburn, Fremantle, Kwinana, Melville and Rockingham and the Town of East Fremantle, the South West Group takes an integrated approach to regional development designed to capitalise on our Region's unique social, commercial and environmental strengths.

  • The Melville Cockburn Chamber of Commerce (MCCC) is an incorporated not-for-profit organisation that seeks to promote the interests of businesses in the Melville and Cockburn local government districts.

  • Business Foundations is one of the largest not-for-profit specialist business advisory and training organisations in Australia helping owners of businesses start, improve and grow.

    They provide tailored, flexible services designed to help businesses at every stage. Client businesses can be tiny, single-person firms or established employers with multi-million-dollar turnovers. For each firm, and at every level of development, they provide the same impartial, independent, evidence-based, professional advice.

    Business Foundations are leaders in business development services in Australia, providing start-up, incubation, export advisory, market development, commercialisation, business growth, digital enterprise and innovation services for more than 20 years.

Business Community Survey 2018

With a vision of ‘Working together, to achieve community wellbeing, for today and tomorrow’ the City of Melville commissions an external research organisation every two years to obtain and track our community’s  satisfaction and wellbeing over time. Local businesses were surveyed in 2018.

The  Markyt Business Perceptions Survey asked the business community about their perceptions of the City’s services, infrastructure and facilities, and also allowed us to benchmark our services across the local government sector.

Tthe City received the highest ranking of participating local governments for overall performance, setting ten industry high standards including as an overall place to operate a business, as a governing organisation and roads.
