Bellingen Shire is a vibrant, prosperous and inclusive community supported by a strong and sustainable local economy. As a location, it is undergoing some exciting changes. Some of these include the Pacific Highway bypass at Urunga, the Bellingen Main Street redesign, the on-going upgrade of Waterfall Way and the roll out of the NBN. These will all present some valuable opportunities for economic development.
Our vision for the future must encompass all aspects of living and working in our shire, as well as ways in which we are connected beyond our borders – regionally, nationally and globally. Our vision is about protecting the pristine natural beauty of our environment and enhancing our prosperous and safe community where inclusiveness and sustainable living are embraced, so that creativity and cultural activity can flourish.
