Welcoming and Attraction Strategy

Like many rural areas across Australia, Balonne Shire is grappling with the ongoing challenge of population decline.

Between 2011 and 2019, 500 residents left our Shire.

Council recognises that we cannot continue to lose residents at this rate and that we must work to find sustainable solutions to this problem.

We want people to come to Balonne Shire and build a prosperous life here; the Welcoming and Attraction Strategy will chart a path for building our population up again.

Right now, the Welcoming and Attraction Strategy is in the draft stage.

Council welcomes constructive feedback on the Strategy, which we will consider for the final version.
