The Glen Innes Highlands Economic Development Strategy 2020-2040 and Action Plan 2020-2025 was reviewed in 2020 by Glen Innes Severn Council. Council adopted the final strategy at the 25 March 2020 Ordinary Council meeting following extensive community consultation.
The Glen Innes Highlands Economic Development Strategy provides a clear pathway for Council and community to foster local socio-economic prosperity and growth through the four key pillars of Partnerships, People, Place and Prosperity.
PLACE-BASED ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
The new paradigm of local and regional development emphasises the identification and mobilisation of endogenous potential, that is, the ability of places to grow drawing on their own resources, notably their human capital and innovative capacities. To tap into unused economic potential that tackle questions of sustainable development and human wellbeing into the future.
GROW GLEN INNES THINK TANK
The 5-year action plan is delivered across Council resources as well as in consultation with the community through the GROW Glen Innes Think Tank which will be formed as a part of the Partnerships actions and initiatives.
This is a mechanism for continual community engagement and inclusion in the delivery of the Economic Development Strategy & Action Plan.
