Improve economic development practices and programs to assist local businesses
The Draft Nillumbik Economic Development Strategy 2020-2030 aims to strengthen the economy and facilitate job creation over the next 10 years. It outlines what Council will be doing to support existing and potential businesses in the Shire.
At the Ordinary Council Meeting on 28 January, Council endorsed the draft strategy for community feedback.
The Strategy includes an economic vision and four objectives. Each objective will be implemented through a number of actions.
We will capitalise on our strengths to grow the economy through advocacy, collaboration, partnerships and innovation, compatible with the Shire’s unique natural environment.
1. Improve economic development practices and programs to assist local businesses.
2. Create vibrant activity centres and employment precincts in Eltham and Diamond Creek.
3. Facilitate economically and environmentally sustainable use of land within the Shire’s green wedge.
4. Showcase Nillumbik’s visitor, recreation and cultural economy.
