This report, funded under the Building Better Regions Fund and undertaken by the Regional Australia Institute (RAI), was motivated by Council’s desire to examine the LGA's workforce challenges and understand the future of jobs in the region. The report seeks to develop a workforce attraction and retention strategy for the Glen Innes Severn Local Government Area (LGA), as envisaged under the Glen Innes Highlands Economic Development Strategy 2020-2040 and its Action Plan 2020-2025. The strategy has a vision to "increase the skilled workforce of Glen Innes Severn LGA to meet current and future employment needs." This can be achieved in partnership with Council, community and industry to deliver against the four key focus areas of: 1. Developing a Regional Learning System 2. Strengthening the Business Community 3. Targeted Attraction 4. Strengthening Liveability To access the report please email: [email protected] This strategy will form part of the next Grow Glen Innes Think Tank.

The draft New England North West 2041 Plan was on public exhibition from 22 November 2021 to 18 February 2022.
The plan is undergoing its first five-yearly review to reset its priorities and extend the plan’s reach to 2041. A submission was lodged to encourage the NSW Department of Planning and Industry to do more for our area and not lean so heavily on the Renewable Energy Zone. Our submission reinforced the opportunity that Geotourism offers Glen Innes and the New England North West Region.

The NSW Government is proposing changes aimed at reducing red tape for farmers wishing to diversify their business with small-scale agritourism activities such as tastings, accommodation, and function facilities. NSW Farmers is working with NSW Department of Planning and Environment to clarify what the changes will mean for farmers, including potential impacts on existing operations like “pick your own” activities.
