Draft Economic Development Strategy

07 December 2018, 05:00 PM

The Draft Economic Development Strategy details how Council plans to support the shire’s ongoing growth through promotion of investment and job creation.

The strategy identifies important sectors which contribute to the local economy and highlights specific activities which Council can pursue to capitalise on opportunities within these sectors.

Council has established a plan that responds to key challenges and provides a framework and Action Plan for the delivery of economic development activities.

Development of the draft document has involved extensive business and community consultation, including seven workshops and a broad survey of businesses on our business database to gather information on business related matters.

The draft strategy is now available for community comment and Council invites anyone with an interest to provide feedback.

Electronic copies of the strategy can be downloaded from the link provided on this page or hard copies can be viewed at Council’s Colac and Apollo Bay customer service centres, the Colac Community Library and Learning Centre and Colac and Apollo Bay Visitor Information Centres.

Comments can be emailed to inq@colacotway.vic.gov.au with the subject heading ‘Draft Economic Development Strategy’ or mailed to PO Box 283, Colac Vic 3250.

Comments close on Friday 7 December 2018.
