Economic Development

Growth of the Region

The identification of opportunities to enhance the economic viability of our communities is a key priority for Council. To this end we will implement strategies to achieve a strong and sustainable local economy that supports the growth of new and existing industry and business activities that enhance local lifestyle and provide long term employment opportunities.

Economic Development Strategy

A 2015 snapshot of the Hinchinbrook Shire in terms of jobs, tourism and agriculture, identifies confronting statistics that underpin a case for change and the creation of a robust economic development strategy. It is clear that despite the region’s extraordinary natural assets and tight knit community, the Hinchinbrook Shire is economically falling behind relative to the rest of Queensland. Without innovative change the ‘business as normal’ trajectory indicates further economic decline. To ensure we are shaping the future for Hinchinbrook correctly, we have created the 2020 Economic Development Strategy which is a five year plan to create economic stability.
