BLOR Business Council vision is to build a thriving and diverse regional corridor to live, work and enjoy for residents, visitors, and travellers alike.

The Council was formed in 2022 and aims to improve existing networks and channels of cooperation between small and micro local businesses and all tiers of government.


The Council provides information, advice, and support on matters of concern to its membership and lobbies the government with suggestions for improvements to policies and procedures that will help small, and micro businesses survive in this difficult economic time.

Currently the Council is conducting a survey of businesses and resident users of Bell’s Line Of Road to provide feedback to the government on how the $100 million dollars allocated by the Federal government to upgrade BLOR can be best used. The survey can be completed at https://www.bellslineroad.com.au/blor-funding-survey


“We want to build relationships between businesses, our community and our government so we can achieve our vision of a road that is a thriving and diverse regional corridor to live, work and enjoy for residents, travellers and visitors alike.” says council member Fiona Germaine
