Draft Economic Development Strategy - Closed

Council’s Economic Development team has prepared a draft Economic Development Strategy (PDF 1.9MB) for the years 2015 - 2020.

The feedback period has now closed and we thank community members, businesses operators, potential investors and anyone else who contributed to the draft Strategy for their input.

Council Officers will now review the feedback and revise the Strategy accordingly.

The Strategy outlines Council’s vision for economic development for the Shire and identifies key activities to enhance the prosperity of Bass Coast. It focusses on five key themes which are closely linked to the Council Plan 2013-2017:

  • Growing our businesses
  • Sustainable economy
  • Visiting Bass Coast
  • Economic Diversity and
  • Farming for the future.

Public forums were held in mid-December 2015 in Wonthaggi and Cowes for members of the public to come along and have their say.
