In April 2019, Scenic Rim Regional Council appointed Lucid Economics to assist in the development of a regional prosperity (economic development) strategy for the region. The intent of the strategy is to establish sustainable economic growth for business, create strong local employment opportunities and high performing industries as well as provide a suitable lifestyle for residents and visitor experiences.
The strategy compliments and aligns with existing plans, objectives and strategies.
Consultation with Council officers and elected officials, local Chambers of Commerce and industry representatives and other important stake holders such as State and Commonwealth Government departments, was undertaken during the development of the strategy.
The Regional Prosperity Strategic Framework is designed to support the creation of valuable local employment for local residents. It has been constructed based on research, analysis and engagement with stakeholders and is built upon the levers of influence and role of local government in economic development.

The Draft Scenic Rim Regional Prosperity Strategy was available for community comment from Monday 2 December through to Monday 16 December 2019.
Council appreciates the feedback received from the community during this time.
The feedback will now be reviewed and the final Scenic Rim Regional Prosperity Strategy will be submitted for approval in early 2020 .
