Unleashing potential

Singleton Economic Development Strategy

Creating and exploring new opportunities for employment and economic growth will be key considerations as Singleton Council commences work on drafting the Singleton Economic Development Strategy.
Dr Kim Houghton and Amanda Kenyon of Strategic Economic Solutions have been engaged to work with Council’s Economic Development team to develop the strategy in consultation with the local business community.
With the recent mining downturn, and the impacts this is having on local business and industry, Singleton Council General Manager Lindy Hyam says the strategy is a high priority for Council.
“Singleton has some specific challenges and opportunities that will be addressed in the action plan including the escape spending of drive in drive out workers, the dominance of the mining industry, our location and accessibility to major centres and our demographics.”
