Have your say on Warrnambool's economic development future

News Article Date: 
Friday, 10 July 2015

This Warrnambool Economic Development and Investment Strategy was developed in-house by Warrnambool City Council with input from many of our business and community leaders. 

The purpose of the Strategy is to provide direction and promotion of the many initiatives considered most necessary to ensure continued growth and prosperity of our local economy.

This Strategy recognises that some initiatives may be beyond the direct control of Warrnambool City Council but require a partnership with a combination of other levels of government, public sector entity or private enterprise.

As the regional capital of the Great South Coast, Warrnambool also plays a key role in providing employment opportunities for residents of neighbouring municipalities.

Some of the initiatives outlined in the document will have positive impacts that will extend well beyond the City of Warrnambool and benefit the Great South Coast region.

This Strategy will remain broad in focus and pointed towards 2020, but will have associated with it an annual Implementation Action Plan which further details actions, priorities, resources and responsibilities.

The list of priorities are extensive, however intentionally not exhaustive to provide adjustment to future changing market dynamics as well as new opportunities that may emerge during the implementation of the Strategy.
