Rebuilding NSW Position Statement

RDACC Board Resolution: September 2014

Submission by Regional Development Australia – Central Coast on the Rebuilding NSW Discussion Paper and the State Infrastructure Strategy, September 2014

Regional Development Australia – Central Coast (RDA Central Coast) provided a submission on the much anticipated initiative of the NSW Government, known as Rebuilding NSW and the State Infrastructure Strategy.

RDA Central Coast welcomes the advice that Rebuilding NSW will invest $20B in productive infrastructure in NSW including a commitment to allocate $6B of that funding to regional communities and notes that the Central Coast is classified as a regional area under this programme. It also notes that 30% of the funding is guaranteed to be allocated to new infrastructure projects in Regional NSW.

RDA Central Coast made this submission in two sections. This first section focused on the governance and project selection process involved in allocating the identified funds to regional projects. The second section focused on specific projects proposed by the Central Coast region that would create the greatest benefit in terms of economic growth, productivity and quality of life.

Although the regions local government authorities, tourism bodies, business leaders and community groups may submit their individual projects for consideration, RDA Central Coast’s submission in regards to specific projects for Rebuilding NSW funding focuses on the regionally significant enabling infrastructure that has already been agreed by key regional stakeholders.

The Central Coast Region Infrastructure Priorities List has been prepared and informed by consultation between members of the Regional Economic Development and Employment Strategy (REDES) Strategy Implementation Group (SIG).
