What is the Economic Development Strategy Renewal?


This project is to renew the Economic Development Strategy 2022-2032 for Yarra Ranges Council.

The Economic Development Strategy is a framework to guide Yarra Ranges Council to facilitate economic growth, build regional competitiveness and strengthen business resilience, create jobs and a diverse business environment, attract investment and improve liveability of the Yarra Ranges community and townships.

We want to competitively position Yarra Ranges as a desirable place to live, invest and visit through identifying economic development opportunities, and balancing the needs of community. Setting a 10-year Economic Strategy vision with a 4 year action plan we can provide clear measurable actions that will be renewed annually.

Why do we need a survey?


Yarra Ranges Council is committed to working with community, business, and stakeholders in the renewal of its Economic Development Strategy.

Your participation will shape a forward looking 10-year plan for economic growth and recovery as the municipality emerges from the impacts of the global pandemics (COVID19) and natural disasters such as the recent storm and flood event. This plan will also respond to a decade of rapid transformation in technology.
