In late August, Council was proud to launch its draft Economic Development Strategy, which takes a place-based approach that aims to build upon the existing world class health care facilities in our area, and capitalise and develop the area’s talented, skilled and culturally diverse workforce.

We are encouraging community feedback on the draft strategy which needs to be provided by Friday 26 October. This can be done through Your Say, on Council’s website. Your input can help inform the future direction of the community, so please take a look and get involved.

Another important area of focus for Council over the coming months will be the development of a Cultural Strategy. We want you to help Create Georges River, so we’ve put together a discussion paper which can also be found on Your Say. This outlines our thinking and aims to stimulate discussion in relation to the Arts, festivals and major events, cultural industries, heritage, and community facilities and cultural infrastructure.
