Economic Development Strategy Community Information Sessions

18 May 2018, 05:00 PM

Council is conducting a survey to gather information from businesses to assist in the development of the Economic Development & Tourism Strategy 2018-2022.

The survey will take approximately 5mins to complete.

The survey is designed to provide a snapshot of the level of business activity within the Colac Otway Shire. It will provide key insight and context to the current state of the economy and the attitudes of local businesses. This information will help shape our ideas when developing an economic development strategy that will be most beneficial and practical for the Shire.

It is very important that we are able to gather feedback from businesses, because our local business people are best placed to identify gaps and opportunities in our current market.
