The Southern Highlands Destination Strategy 2020-2030 identifies Agribusiness and Equine as significant industries within the Shire, with a focus on increasing overall economic value and job creation.
In the wake of drought and bushfires and during significant industry disruption caused by Covid-19, Wingecarribee Shire Council, Destination Sydney Surrounds South, growers and producers together with other government agencies and industry experts focused on these industry sectors.
Two projects ran concurrently – Agribusiness & Equine Industry and Facilities; and the Southern Highlands Produce Hub Feasibility Study – which facilitated collaboration on key common elements.
On 15 June 2022 Council noted the work undertaken on these projects, including actions on which Council and others may assume lead roles. Two reports and the feasibility study have been made available and opportunity remains for development of new initiatives.
