Summary This paper examines the stmcture, function and role of local business associations in home based business development within an urban region. Casey local government area (LOA), Victoria, is the focus, where nine local business associations in the area (as well as the local council) are evaluated in the context of support for local-based business development. The evaluation draws upon primary data co llected by surveys of local home based businesses, and follows up by semi-stmctured interviews of representatives from these business associations and the local council. This paper identifies that local business associations are fragmented and have significant overlap in their activities of which the commonest activity is acting as a knowledge distribution node. The cash strapped local council is the most important node. All are restricted by vision and resources. As a result, the services provided have little impact on sustainable business development in Casey.
