Employment Land Strategy

As part of its 2030 Community Vision, Council strives to encourage a resilient economy where meaningful work opportunities and vibrant business exist within our community.

Council recently completed an Employment Lands Strategy that considers  future land requirements for the growth of employment generating industries in the Shire and this has been conditionally endorsed by the State Government. While some areas favoured by Council for new or expanded industrial zonings have not been endorsed at this stage,

Council will be working towards securing the necessary endorsements in 2014. For other areas that were endorsed, planning processes have already commenced to implement the recommended changes to land zonings. An extension of the Bellingen business zoning is one example of this.
