Why is it important to
diversify our economy?
A diversified range of businesses, jobs and exports spread across more industries will result in a community that is better able to withstand disruptions.
Diversification will offer future options for our young people and foster new career and income opportunities for everyone.
The Draft Economic Diversification Plan (EDP) will support diversification work already happening across the district, working towards the goal of a resilient and sustainable economy offering a diverse range of career and income opportunities by 2050.
