Strategy Objectives

1. A diversified economy that is aimed primarily at sustainable agriculture, new technology businesses, tourism opportunities, aged care related services and local investment in our existing and emerging businesses which produces an injection of new capital into the community.
2. Furthering the business customer base to include the population within the three-hour drive market (Grafton, Tenterfield, Inverell, Armidale, Tamworth and southeast Queensland towns of Stanthorpe and Warwick).
3. Providing a community culture of ongoing learning that will give educational opportunities needed for our emerging industries and research capabilities. These would also be compatible with local business opportunities on a range of levels through improved export potential or value-adding industries.
4. Focusing on increasing job opportunities through developing new and entrepreneurial businesses that identify with well paid, meaningful and satisfying positions for the youth of the district.
5. Sustaining our traditional, regional rural industries, strongly supported by our streamlined and accredited sale yards showing high throughput and low costs.
6. A social framework in which provision is made for a lifestyle and health that satisfies the residents’ desire for educational, recreational, social and environmental facilities.
