Our Focus

The Mid West Development Commission is focused on delivering on the aims of the Mid West Regional Blueprint - the region's aspirational growth and development plan. 

As a high level guiding agenda, the Blueprint proposes strategies against five priority pillars, each considered vital to either driving, or reducing barriers to, regional growth and development. Considering the possible impact of various national and global mega-trends, the Blueprint strategies focus on the region’s key strengths and those opportunities with genuine growth and development potential. 

The Mid West Regional Blueprint has deliberately stopped short of listing priority projects. As a strategic document it provides a logical basis for future growth and development. It now requires the Commission to work with stakeholders to determine the very best projects that can drive and / or enable regional growth and development, against each of the Blueprint’s priority pillars. 

The challenge for the region now is to develop a ‘pipeline’ of high priority ‘game changing’ projects that are well planned and ready for investment. 

The Mid West Regional Blueprint presents a long term vision to support key investments to help grow the Mid West and help ensure it remains an outstanding place to live, work, study and invest.
