Wentworth Shire is experiencing considerable economic growth with the latest statistics released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) confirming the trend.
“Wentworth Shire continues to buck the trends experienced across the rest of NSW in terms of building approvals,” said Ken Ross, General Manager. “When you compare the value of the building approvals granted in the 2018/19 financial year with the 2019/20 financial year, you can see that Wentworth Shire experienced an increase of 65.8% in the value of building approvals.”
“This compares to the NSW average of an 8% decrease” he said.
This coupled with a total increase of output from industry of over $56M (5.6%) highlight the fact that Wentworth Shire is a sought-after destination for people to invest in.
With a thriving region, supported by a robust economic base, distinctive open spaces and strong local governance and leadership, Wentworth Shire is a desirable Shire to visit, live, work and invest.
