Economic Development Strategy (EDS)
The Flinders Shire is a place of enormous opportunity. Recent changes around the globe and in Australia provide our community with a new growth horizon, where both our traditional industries (such as cattle and tourism) and new industries (such as renewable energy, health and irrigated horticulture) have strong growth prospects.
To realise these opportunities, we have prepared this Economic Development Strategy to ensure we are not only leveraging our competitive advantages, but also focusing on overcoming our weaknesses, to support future growth in our shire.
The new Flinders Shire Economic Development Strategy sets a clear direction for our council to confirm that economic development is at the core of everything we do. We want to continue to grow and become a more vibrant, diverse and progressive place to live, visit and invest.
This Economic Development Strategy includes a comprehensive Action Plan that ensures we are doing the full range of activities needed to ensure success.
