At its meeting on 25 October, Council adopted the Economic Development, Tourism & Investment Attraction Strategy 2022-2032.
The Economic Development, Tourism & Investment Attraction Strategy 2022-2032 (EDTIA Strategy) delivers a vision and action plan for economic, business and tourism development in Golden Plains Shire over the next 10 years.
The EDTIA Strategy outlines four priority focus areas for the next decade: small towns and enterprise; productive, sustainable landscapes; escape the city; and Shire-based health and education. The strategy’s action plan details Council’s commitment of delivery for all focus groups over the next four years and beyond.
With analysis on the current state of the Golden Plains Shire economy and identification of industries of potential, the EDTIA Strategy lists key infrastructure projects and support programs that will close the gap between the current situation and future potential.
The EDTIA Strategy has been developed in consultation with local businesses, tourism operators, and Golden Plains Shire community members
From 19 May to 20 June 2022, the Economic Development, Tourism & Investment Attraction community survey was open and the feedback from 19 respondents has informed the development of the Draft EDTIA Strategy.
The Draft Economic Development, Tourism & Investment Attraction Strategy 2022-2032 was on public exhibition and open to submissions from Thursday 25 August to 5pm, Thursday 22 September, 2022.
