Swan Hill Region Economic Development Strategy

Swan Hill Region Economic Development Strategy 2017-2022 provides strategic direction for economic growth in the Swan Hill municipality over a five-year period and beyond. It aims to build on the region’s strengths, capture new opportunities and address challenges to make the region a highly desirable place to invest, live, work and visit.

To ensure a vibrant and prosperous economy, the region needs to continually evolve and be responsive to change. A Case for Change has been developed within this strategy, providing three objectives that will enable the region to achieve this:

  • Expand on strengths
  • Develop new opportunities
  • Take up the challenge

A number of significant projects underpin this strategic direction and once implemented, will assist with delivering this strategy’s objectives. These include:

  • Commercial developments in the Swan Hill Riverfront precinct
  • A new art and cultural precinct
  • Renewable energy parks
  • South West residential development and commercial development in Swan Hill
  • Murray Valley Highway commercial precinct entrances
  • Swan Hill Livestock Exchange precinct upgrade
  • Regional community sustainability, through the delivery of Community Plan priorities
  • Swan Hill Abattoirs expansion
  • Bromley Road, Robinvale, upgrade
  • Waste to energy
