Consultation has concluded

Come In we're open for business image

Our new Draft Economic Development Strategy has been prepared to:

  • grow Mitchell’s economy with a focus on job generation and sustainable economic growth,
  • build on Mitchell’s competitive advantages,
  • promote upskilling & innovation and strengthen engagement, relationships and communication with businesses
  • identify projects and initiatives that will lead to significant economic benefit for the region.


The Economic Development Strategy should provide a five year plan for our Economic Development Team to strengthen Mitchell’s economy in conjunction with private and public stakeholders.

The draft Strategy draws on extensive economic research and community consultation throughout 2015 and includes feedback from community and industry surveys, community information sessions and meetings with industry leaders. This information is summarised in the accompanying Background Discussion Paper.
