Regional Development Australia Eyre Peninsula (RDAEP), in partnership with the Eyre Peninsula Local Government Association (EPLGA) and Eyre Peninsula Landscape Board, are happy to present a draft Strategic Regional Plan 2023-2026, following stakeholder consultation via survey and regional workshops.

The intent of the new Strategic Regional Plan 2023-2026 is to deliver a unified vision and region-wide strategies for attaining sustainable economic development on the Eyre Peninsula over the next three years. It is hoped that a new Plan can assist the region to grow, enhance and diversify its economy in a sustainable manner, by providing stakeholders, potential investors and policymakers with a better understanding of the region, its strengths, challenges and needs. This will ultimately guide investment by all levels of government and industry, and assist the region to achieve its future economic ambitions in a strategic and guided way.

It is important for key regional stakeholders to agree on a set of common needs and priorities for the region, such that they can coordinate their collective efforts in a manner that ensures outcomes are maximised. As a facilitator of economic development, RDAEP has an important role to play in bringing stakeholders together under a common strategic plan for our region. The themes of Social Capacity, Infrastructure Capability, Economic Prosperity and Environmental Sustainability were identified through stakeholder engagement and research, with 17 Priority Areas identified with associated strategies.
