SMALL BUSINESS COMMISSION AT PARRAMATTA

The NSW Small Business Commission has joined the growing number of Government workplaces relocating to Parramatta as the number of small businesses in Western Sydney continues to rise.


Minister for Small Business Damien Tudehope said the NSW Government wanted to support the growth of thousands of additional jobs in Parramatta.

“The latest ABS statistics show there were 785,886 small businesses in NSW in June 2019, with 178,296 located in Western Sydney,” Mr Tudehope said.

“The number of small businesses in Western Sydney grew by more than 5 per cent in the year to June 2019 – faster than the total State growth of close to 3 per cent.”

The Small Business Commission’s move is part of the NSW Government’s Decade of Decentralisation policy, which includes a focus on Western Sydney.

“This Government is committed to reducing government office space in the Sydney CBD by at least 100,000 square metres by 2021,” Mr Tudehope said.

“Projects such as the Sydney Metro West, Parramatta Light Rail, the new BankWest Stadium and the Powerhouse Museum are breathing new life into Parramatta.”

Acting NSW Small Business Commissioner Stephen Brady said a move to the vibrant business hub of Parramatta was an exciting opportunity.  

“The NSW Small Business Commission will play a key role in supporting local businesses as the development of these major projects get underway, but we will continue to advocate for small businesses in all corners of NSW,” he said.

“Key issues we will continue to focus on include supporting small businesses impacted by the devastating bushfires and the ongoing drought.”

The Commission joins other Government agencies in Parramatta, such as the Department of Education, Department of Planning, Industry and Environment and the Department of Customer Service. The move will take place today, Monday, March 2.
