Liverpool City Region Ecological Framework Essay

Liverpool is the centre of South West Sydney, a region with a rapidly growing multicultural population. The Liverpool City Council area is one of the largest Local Government Areas in metropolitan Sydney. The City encompasses a total land area of 305 square kilometres and 42 suburbs, with a population of 210,000.

While Liverpool's rapid population growth itself creates momentum for new business opportunities, Council is mindful that significant challenges exist in ensuring that local employment growth keeps pace with population growth. The NSW Government's 'A Plan for Growing Sydney' identifies Liverpool as a Strategic Centre with priorities being the commercial core and planning for long-term employment growth.

Liverpool's competitive advantages lie in the health and medical, distribution and logistics, professional services and manufacturing services and provide an impetus for the creation of high quality jobs across the local government area. Liverpool's status as one of Sydney's regional cities is also important in drawing a range of new retail and services jobs to the Liverpool city centre.

Liverpool Council also recognises the importance of small business in retaining and creating jobs in the local government area and working in partnership with organisations such as the City of Liverpool Chamber of Commerce and Industry, looking to create an environment where small business can capitalise on growth opportunities.

The thrust of Liverpool Council's efforts to assist economic growth in the area involves:-

  • Attracting new job-generating investment to Liverpool, consistent with the local government area's competitive strengths
  • Working with existing business to assist them to grow and improve competitiveness
  • Working with employers to engage and train local people.
