Golden Plains Shire Council is pleased to offer a new free advertising opportunity to local businesses and services to connect them with the Shire’s newest residents.

Golden Plains Shire Council publishes a New Residents Guide that is distributed to people who have newly purchased or rented a home in Golden Plains Shire. The guide includes useful information on Council services, including how to find out what day the rubbish is collected and how to access the local library, aged care, or maternal and child health services.

Council is updating the guide and adding a new section of vouchers to promote local businesses to this valuable group of prospective new customers and clients. Each voucher will include a special offer for new residents from that business, such as a local café may offer two free coffees or a local dentist may offer a 10% discount on the first check-up appointment.

For local businesses, it’s free and easy to participate. Interested businesses within Golden Plains Shire can complete an online form with their business information, offer to new residents and attach a business logo, if applicable. The online form is available here.

All forms must be submitted by Friday 14 February, 2020. The updated New Residents Guide will be published in early 2020. Vouchers may only be used once and will have a standard expiration date of 31 December 2021. A sample design of the vouchers is available on the online form.

Businesses with any questions can call Council’s Investment Attraction and Business Support team at 5220 7111 or email
