The Economic Development and Tourism unit is Kempsey Shire Council’s link to the business community and works closely with existing and new business operators to create a strong and diverse local economy, generate tourism opportunities for the Macleay Valley Coast and increase local employment opportunities. We also manage the business development of Council’s assets, including Kempsey Airport, Kempsey Regional Saleyards and Macleay Valley Coastal Holiday Parks.
