City & economic development
Council takes a very holistic approach to growth and expansion. This involves supporting the attraction of new investment via business, events, visitors and new residents; and also development of existing businesses, expansion of industries, workforce, events and destination experiences (including tourism).
Dubbo is the largest city in the LGA and the Orana Region with an impressive economic profile.
The 2016-2017 LGA Economic Development Action Plan includes specific economic development related activities and projects that are within Council’s adopted Delivery Plan. It also includes broader work programs and operational services that will be developed, maintained and strengthened in the 2016-2017 period to support economic growth across the LGA footprint.
The Plan identifies key outcomes areas within 10 strategic themes. Progress of the Economic Development Action Plan is reported to Council and LGA stakeholders on quarterly basis.
