Industy Sector Strategies

Local councils have an important role in fostering economic development in their regions and there a number of ways that councils can promote specific industries in a targeted and meaningful way – such as developing industry sector strategies. 

Locale Consulting has developed a number of industry sector strategies for the Shoalhaven City Council’s Economic Development Office.  These economic development based strategies seek to consolidate and provide direction for council’s involvement in key industry sectors for the region based on industry trends and case studies of successful projects, and the needs of the local area.  Our approach is to work closely with Council and established industry groups / participants to establish and road test ways that can deliver best results.  We find that the communication process can in itself be a catalyst to ongoing discussion and delivery of desired outcomes. 

We have produced five strategies for the agri-business, defence, digital economy, medical education and bio-technology sectors.  The documents are actions based documents designed to provide short to long-term goals to stimulate economic development in the region.
