Economic Development and Tourism Strategy

Council is seeking community feedback on the draft Economic Development and Tourism Strategy.


The strategy is closely aligned to the Council Plan and provides direction for Council to:

•             Support the retention and expansion of existing businesses in the Shire

•             Attract new business investment and infrastructure

•             Collaborate at a regional level (through alliances with government, businesses and community organisations) to share in economic development and tourism initiatives.

•             Leverage financial resources for economic development by helping to deliver State and Federal economic development and tourism agendas, where they are consistent with Buloke’s economic strengths.


To ensure the strategy meets the needs of the community, Council is seeking feedback through written submissions.


Written submissions, entitled Economic Development and Tourism Strategy can be made up to 5.00pm 8 June 2018.


Submissions can be submitted by: email to buloke@buloke.vic.gov.au, by post to Buloke Shire Council, PO Box 1, Wycheproof, Victoria 3527 or in person at 367 Broadway, Wycheproof.
