Who Are we

Providing support, advocacy and promoting networking  opportunities for business enterprises in Blaxland and the surrounding suburbs.

What We Do

General
The Blaxland & Districts Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc. is an association of businesses in Blaxland and the surrounding suburbs who understand the similar difficulties and challenges small business owners face and appreciate the value of combining their resources and expertise to support each other and enhance all aspects of business operation. We value a proactive attitude and enjoy introducing members to each other to create business opportunities.

As a local Chamber of Commerce we are recognised and respected by various levels of government and are actively and regularly engaged in consultation; particularly with Blue Mountains City Council and our local ward Councillors. This consultation is essential to bring about positive outcomes for council controlled land and ensure the proper upkeep of Council assets such as car parks, parks and public toilets.

Through our membership associates such as the NSW Chambers of Commerce and Mountains Combined Chambers and Community (MCCC) we will advocate for appropriate implementation of the Local Environment Plan (LEP) and provide resources and advice to the Blaxland Chamber members.

Activities and events
The Blaxland Chamber holds four business breakfasts each year with interesting and relevant speakers, updates on local and state planning matters, networking opportunities and business skills training.

We maintain links with the police and graffiti removal volunteers to ensure that crime, including graffiti is reported quickly to ensure that the perpetrators are brought to justice and incident numbers are kept low.

The Chamber oversees maintenance of the Blaxland townships security camera system from fundraising events throughout the year.  

We communicate with and encourage Council to be aware of the effects on business of limited and congested car parking, diminishing opportunities for medium density development close to commercial and rail hubs and when cleaning, signage and access is impeded or neglected.

The chamber holds other fundraising, educational and networking events on a regular basis.
