Council Launches its Investment Prospectus and Advocate Videos

Northern Grampians Shire Council is delighted to launch Discover Northern Grampians, an investment prospectus and advocate videos on Wednesday, 19 June 2024 from 5.30pm to 7.30pm at the North Park Community Sports Centre.

The council has developed a beautiful, engaging and stimulating package to showcase its region and give people who might be thinking about bringing their family, their business or their investments to the Northern Grampians plenty of food for thought.

The package includes a prospectus document with all the facts and figures needed to make important decisions about where to locate your family and business and compelling vignettes where 19 locals tell their story of living and doing business in the shire. The advocate videos showcase local people who love living in the shire and have been successful in business or other endeavours. This is in response to little high quality video footage being available for potential new residents, investors and new business to view. The CEO Brent McAlister developed a prospectus and similar videos in New South Wales and Gippsland which were very successful.

“When it came to finding local people to tell their story, we were spoilt for choice, Northern Grampians Shire Council Mayor, Councillor Rob Haswell said. “So many engaging people with great stories. Farmers, winemakers, producers, teachers. From big industry to small business and community members whose passion saw them working and developing their communities and community projects to benefit the region.

“They include people whose families have lived in the region for generations and those who were lured here by the beauty and many opportunities.

“Northern Grampians has so much to offer. Big ticket items such as the historic and iconic Stawell Gift, the Grampians National Park, the Grape Escape Food and Wine Festival and the Stawell Underground Physics Laboratory to name a few. Those are generally known outside of the area, but many other benefits of living and working in our region are not so well known. This package that will be launched changes that.

“A local real estate business owner, Terry Monaghan, summed it up – ‘What we have above below and on the ground is pretty exceptional”. Referring to the air quality, sunsets, and mild weather above ground, the mountains, lakes, forests and industry on the ground and the Gold Mine and Underground Physics Laboratory below ground. He is right, we really do have it all, Councillor and Mayor Rob Haswell explained.

The prospectus and videos will be used to promote the shire in social media and local job sites to attract new employees.
