Draft Economic Development and Tourism Strategy 2020-2025

The draft Economic Development and Tourism Strategy, 2020-2025 has been prepared to provide Council, in its role to support, facilitate and in some cases as a promoter of economic development, with a high-level plan of action to support the vibrancy, diversity and sustainability of the Hornsby Shire Council area.

Council’s Economic Development and Tourism Strategy is part of the Productivity theme of the Community Strategic Plan. The Strategy is informed by the Employment Land Study.

The draft Economic Development and Tourism Strategy is the first economic development or tourism strategy that Council has considered since 2011. As such, the document is foundational in its approach and focuses on identifying areas that require additional investigation or work, mixed with specific actions to support and foster sustainable economic development within Hornsby. The draft Strategy has been updated to include reference to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the local economy and recommends actions to support the economic recovery process.
