Last time I checked, there were no government grants in Australia to help start a business unless you align with one of these - A community based non-for-profit organisation - Focused on youth - Providing services for people with a disability - Based on supporting innovation You could try other forms of grants. Banks are giving out grants all the time but with similar conditions.

Hi Peter - Not sure how old this post is - I have some good contacts for grants in R&D, Innovation and Export, Cheers Ian
Hi Peter, I know your questions was for DBI but in case of any query about council approval in Australia & Blue Mountains then you can contact Colin Frager for town planning consultancy.
