Draft Economic Development Strategy on exhibition

Camden's draft Economic Development Strategy 2022-2026 has been developed to outline priorities and actions for economic development throughout the local government area. It will also set the framework for Council as an enabler of economic growth and diversification in Camden and throughout the Western Parkland City.

Stakeholder consultation helped identify four strategic directions which will support and enhance the Camden economy over the short to medium term and provide a framework for Council to achieve its vision for economic growth.

It is now time to check back in with the broader community and stakeholders to review the drafted Strategy.

Once finalised, the Strategy will help Council to work collaboratively across government and industry, to facilitate economic activity and employment growth, advocate for investment in the Camden LGA, and encourage the development of attractive and vibrant places in order to grow a prosperous economy and connected community.
