Invest where the tide is high

Clarence Valley is undergoing an economic revolution fuelled by the sea change and tree change, affordable and available residential and industrial land, comparatively lower operational costs, higher yields and a growing population.

Demand for skilled workers is increasing, residential housing approvals are out performing neighbouring areas, and substantial investments are being made in aged care, tourism, timber and core infrastructure, particularly water storage.

Positioned on a big river at the centre of three major highways, with existing rail links, air and seaport access and space to grow, Clarence Valley is in a strong economic position.

The Clarence is ideally situated to service markets throughout New South Wales and southeast Queensland. The Valley benefits from its close proximity to Brisbane –
being just three hours away – and by 2026 it will be just down the road from an estimated population of around 3.84 million.

Council is one New South Wales’ newest and largest Local Governments. Council is future focused and is currently implementing an ambitious set of infrastructure programs, moving forward with retail precinct developments, supporting existing business, facilitating an investment friendly environment and attracting new industry.

Investment and relocation gateway

To help make those all important business and investment decisions easier, Clarence Valley Council has developed a new relocation and investment attraction program.

The program is based on the Clarence region’s unique selling points.

In stage 1, it is focused on creating investor awareness in key target markets, particularly in southeast Queensland.

An out of region investment marketing plan has been launched and involves promotion and media through in flight magazines, lifestyle and business publications.
