Prosperous Places – what is the economy we need?

We need your advice on how to create Prosperous Places in the Surf Coast Shire.

Prosperous Places is a major project looking at the Surf Coast’s places, emerging industries and jobs – now and into the future.

Come and find out more about the project, and what we have discovered on the Surf Coast economy.

Share your thoughts on what will make your area prosperous into the future.

What does prosperity mean to you? Considering the connections between people, places and businesses, how can we improve our quality of life?

Come along for a presentation and discussion from project team members on key topics, and leave your comments.
