The Economic Development Strategy outlines the significant impacts of COVID-19. It details our immediate recovery and reactivation approach, as well as our proposals for sustained economic prosperity in the medium and long term.

In consultation with government, industry and community, we identified eight key priorities. We proposed 41 actions that will drive economic recovery and create conditions for a sustainable and thriving future.

Community consultation was open from 19 May to 9 June 2021. Feedback we heard was used to inform the final strategy, which was endorsed by Council on 29 June 2021.
