The draft Dwellingup Futures Road Map will be presented to the public on Wednesday August 11, 5:30pm at the Dwellingup Community Hall.

Developed through a multi-stakeholder process which kicked-off in late 2019, the draft Road Map presents a shared vision as well as goals, strategic priorities and key success indicators which aim to achieve the desired growth of Dwellingup by 2036.

Shire president David Bolt said the event signified the start of the public comment period for the "influential" document.

"Dwellingup has experienced a period of significant investment and tourism growth over recent years, momentum that needs to be protected and sustainably maintained," Cr Bolt said.

"New and existing opportunities for industry and jobs and methods of co-existence between different sectors, industries and land uses, have been identified for the betterment of the town, region and state.
