Join us for the July 2019 Hervey Bay Chamber of Commerce Breakfast as we discuss planning for the economic success of the Fraser Coast.

We are delighted to have our Mayor, George Seymour and CEO of the Fraser Coast Regional Council, Ken Diehm, present to Chamber Members and Supporters the newly released Economic Roadmap for the region as well as the 2019/20 FCRC Budget.

The Fraser Coast has experienced significant change since 2014 when Council’s last Economic Development Strategy was developed which had a time horizon from 2015 to 2020. Council has a key role in promoting economic growth in the region to ensure future prosperity and increased employment opportunities in our community and they have developed a new Economic Roadmap which will be a strategic blueprint for the region’s future growth, focusing on long-term economic priorities to the year 2030.

The Roadmap identifies ‘enabling strategies’ to meet these long-term growth priorities and our Mayor and CEO will take us through the economic growth priorities for the region for the next 11 years and the steps required to activate the short to medium term Enabling Strategies required to achieve our ambitions for the economy of the Fraser Coast.

In conjunction with the launch of the Economic Roadmap, George and Ken will speak to the recently announced Council Budget for 2019/2020. With the Fraser Coast’s current population of 108,000 people expected to grow to 147,000 by 2036, Council has budgeted to provide the quality services, facilities and infrastructure needed now and into the future whilst at the same time living within the regions means and finding efficiencies and cost savings within Council’s operations to minimise the financial burden on the region.

We look forward to hearing how the Economic Roadmap and the Budget work hand in hand to create success and prosperity for our region.
