What is the purpose of a Economic Development Growth Strategy?
The Economic Development Growth Strategy 2021-2025 reflects Council’s commitment to economic growth, assisting and supporting the business sector, strengthening the local economy, and ensuring the City of Unley is known as a great place to do business.
The Strategy sets out a whole-of-city approach to economic growth to influence a vibrant and successful local economy that reflects the quality of life, environmental principles and values of the community. A key focus for the strategy is a holistic approach to increase the population and number of jobs within the City and to support sustainable business growth. The Strategy addresses emerging economic conditions and opportunities while providing clear strategies and actions for the next five years.
When will the Economic Development Growth Strategy come into effect?
After community consultation has closed, feedback will be collated to inform amendments to the draft Strategy. The final Strategy will then be presented to our Elected Members for Council endorsement.
It is anticipated that the Economic Development Growth Strategy will be endorsed by 30 June 2021.
