A new ‘Grow and Prosper Corangamite’ will bring together economic development, tourism, arts and culture and events and festivals strategies. Which historically have had three individual strategies.  

The aim is to ensure Council has a strategy that serves our Shire's unique needs, opportunities, and aspirations. Council staff will work with the community and industry sectors to determine exactly what businesses, artists and other stakeholders aspire to and how we can make it happen.  

The new plan will contain specific action plans for six key areas:  

  • visitor economy
  • creative industries
  • circular economy
  • events and festivals
  • population attraction and retention
  • specific industry sectors (agriculture, manufacturing, building, health, education, small business, retail etc).

The development of the plan kicked off with the Dinner event, followed by a co-design workshop, a breakfast with keynote Simon Kuestenmacher (Director and Co-founder of the Demographics Group) and a second co-design workshop.  

We invite members of the community to share their thoughts and ideas by completing the survey below.
