Draft Economic Development Strategy

Following the work done by the Shaping Our Future forum, and in consultation with stakeholders, the Council commissioned a Draft Economic Strategy. The intention was to identify possible ways to help grow, strengthen and diversify the local economy, providing benefits for all our small communities as well as the district as a whole.
The Council would like to hear what the community thinks about the overall direction that the Draft Strategy suggests. Please read the draft strategy below and click the 'Submit Your Feedback' link to give your feedback. You are welcome to comment on all or some of the proposed actions, or to give your thoughts on any other matter that you believe is relevant.
