Economic well-being considers whether our economy can generate the employment and wealth necessary to provide many of the requirements that make for social well-being, such as health, financial security, and equity of opportunity.

It includes topics such as:

  • Job opportunities
  • Support for unemployed and low-income earners
  • Being a business-friendly district
  • Environmentally sustainable economic growth
  • Affordable living and cost of living
  • Paying a living wage
  • Equal job opportunities, for example not disadvantaged by race or gender
  • Community infrastructure including transportation network, electricity, internet, drinking water, wastewater and stormwater network

Examples of what we do in these areas:

  • Hosting community events such as Glow in the Park
  • Supporting youth employment through Mayor’s Taskforce for Jobs
  • Stormwater system protects communities and property from ongoing economic damage
