Economic Development

The Gore District Council prides itself on being proactive in encouraging economic development.

We have a District Growth Committee charged with identifying opportunities and how best to meet any challenges when it comes to people making the District their first choice to live, work and play.

We also support a community-led approach to delivering a sustainable socio-economic future through Ready for Growth. You can find out more about this project on our Ready for Growth page
