The Capricorn Coast is a region of lifestyle, diversity,
sustainability, innovation and untapped opportunities. We are driven and
future focused. We embrace the opportunity to determine our own
future. The Capricorn Coast is not only a popular tourism destination,
but a thriving community and region full of potential and possibilities for
future investment, development and business.
The Economy and Places team is responsible for strategic growth
and economic development initiatives that drive growth in the local economy by
delivering capability and innovation programs, tourism destination development,
innovative placemaking and urban design initiatives along with effective
management of Council’s property portfolio and land holdings. The Economy
and Places team is committed to supporting business development and investment
support. We work with all levels of government, government departments
and the private sector to identify core areas for the sustainable economic
development of the region. We also work with the Australian and Queensland
governments in bidding for grants and funding to assist in the development of
the Capricorn Coast region.
The Economy and Places team is always on the lookout for ways to
increase the region’s capacity to do business, thus increasing prosperity for
business, industry and the community.
