Economic Development Strategy

Carpentaria Shire Council is working with the State Government to develop an Economic Diversification Strategy for the Shire. Councils Economic Development Strategy will emphasise the economic opportunities within our region and will be linked to the broader North West Queensland Economic Diversification Strategy.

Carpentaria Shire Council held a community meeting on the 26th and 27th September 2019 in Normanton and Karumba to discuss the proposed Carpentaria Shire Economic Development Strategy. Participants at the community meetings were asked to collectively reflect on the strengths, challenges and opportunities of Carpentaria Shire.

Council is now calling for feedback from all businesses within the shire to assist with the implementation and development of the strategy. In order to be able to best encapsulate the regions strategy moving forward please complete the Business Survey by Friday 1st November 2019 and return to Councils Economic Development Department.
