Thriving economy

Objective 6 - A thriving economy with locals jobs, investment and new industries

“Employment opportunities that decrease commute times with good infrastructure for socialising and working”

Female, 39-48, Casey Next.

“More jobs across various skills and trades so that people do not have to travel to Melbourne CBD. Maybe have another CBD in Casey”

Male, 29-38, Casey Next.

Council will facilitate and support job creation, particularly in new and emerging industries, through partnerships and city planning. It is a priority for the Council that the number of local jobs increases to reduce the high number of people who must leave the municipality for work every day.
