Economic Development is critical for the future of our district.

Council’s ability to ensure long term sustainable services for growth in business and population is important.

Good planning for infrastructure delivery that matches economic development is the responsibility of Council. Supporting housing, commercial and industrial growth is positive for our future.

I will work hard at building partnerships with Government and the Private Sector. I will ensure we support key economic sectors, particularly agri business and service industries that are critical for our success.

I will promote our District nationally and internationally in an effort to attract investment and growth.

Our economic development must complement our environmental, cultural and social wellbeing.
