Developed by the Mid West Development Commission (MWDC) in collaboration with Regional Development Australia Mid West Gascoyne (RDAMWG), the Blueprint is an aspirational growth and development plan for the region.
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 impacts of various national and global megatrends, the Blueprint strategies focus on the region’s key strengths and those opportunities with genuine growth and development potential.
The Mid West 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 Mid West Regional Blueprint was launched on 25 August 2015 at the Mid West Economic and Resources Summit by Minister for Regional Development, the Hon Terry Redman MLA.
