Economic Development Strategy

Shaping Victor Harbor's Economic Development Strategy

The City of Victor Harbor is preparing an Economic Development Strategy that will assist to grow our local economy and attract investment that leads to local job creation.

The four year plan will outline a vision for a thriving economy that creates opportunity and enhances our valued lifestyle. It will set out a number of objectives, strategies and preliminary actions that will help achieve this.

Council has invested considerable time engaging with the community, gathering intelligence on Victor Harbor’s economic performance indicators and seeking to understand what are important ingredients in developing a sound economic development strategy.

Council is now seeking to consolidate this work, and use the data to prepare a draft Economic Development Strategy for Council and community consideration.

To help us do this, we sought expressions of interest from suitably qualified and interested persons from within the community to participate in an Economic Development Strategy working party. The role of the working party will be to consider the work undertaken by Council and provide advice to shape a draft strategy.These nominations were considered with membership finalised by Council in November 2019.

The working party will meet in early 2020 to start shaping a draft strategy.
