Economic Development Strategy 2020 - 2025

Background

Kentish Council has commenced work on our future economic development strategy. This strategy will guide the council’s economic development actions from 2020 to 2025.

As COVID-19 will have a considerable impact on the economy for months to come, our coronavirus recovery plans will shape the development of this strategy in addition to broader vision considerations.

Feedback is welcomed at any time to council’s Economic and Tourism Development Officer, Hannah Allwood. Feedback will also be sort through an online community and business survey coming soon and through the public comment stage of the strategy anticipated for later this year.

Council aims to have the new Strategy finalised by the end October 2020.
