Tourism and Economic Development Plan 2011-2015
"Strong Communities and Vibrant Economies"
In 2011 Council engaged it's community to assist with identifying issues and opportunities to enhance economic activities and employment in the Council area. This input has been used to prepare the Tourism and Economic Development Plan for the Coorong Council. The Plan has been developed by URPS (an urban and regional planning firm), using financial modelling by economic planning and analysis firm SGS (Spiller Gibbons Swan).
Coorong District Council has developed this Tourism and Economic Development Plan which focuses on positive strategies to re-invigorate the local economy. This initiative is being funded by the Federal Government Strengthening Basin Communities Program (planning component).
The plan sets out objectives and strategies for nurturing innovation, supporting local economic development and strengthening business and community confidence. In this way, the Council will be able to assist communities to identify and realise opportunities available to them to foster new forms of tourism and economic development.
