Email Link   Tweed Shire Economic Development Strategy

The Tweed Shire Economic Development Strategy (EDS) provides a framework for how Council will meet the challenges and opportunities facing economic development in The Tweed. The strategy presents seven economic development pillars that link to key projects that will establish The Tweed as a Shire with a diverse, sustainable and thriving economy able to provide jobs for its growing population whilst maintaining the unique environmental and landscape values of the Shire.

The Tweed Shire Economic Development Strategy (EDS) is a joint project between Tweed Shire Council and Destination Tweed. Both organisations play a key role in the economic development and promotion of Tweed Shire.

Tweed Shire Council’s role in economic development is to facilitate business investment, implement policy and create an environment conducive to appropriate industry as outlined in the strategy.

Destination Tweed's role in economic development is to market and promote the Tweed region as a tourist destination, provide destination information, investigate, develop and deliver new tourism product.
