A new Strategic Regional Plan (the Plan) for the sustainable economic growth of the Eyre Peninsula is being prepared by Regional Development Australia Eyre Peninsula (RDAEP), in partnership with the Eyre Peninsula Local Government Association (EPLGA) and the Eyre Peninsula Landscape Board (EPLB).
The Plan will outline priorities for 2023 to 2026 to support the prosperity of the region by:
- leveraging regional advantage
- managing regional growth pressures
- addressing economic development and infrastructure needs
- identifying other important opportunities.
It will also provide stakeholders, policy makers and potential investors with a better understanding of the Eyre Peninsula (EP) – what our challenges are and what makes our region unique and great.
The existing Regional Strategic Plan was prepared jointly in 2019 by RDAEP and EPLGA and is now due for review.
URPS, well-respected leaders in planning and engagement, have been appointed to prepare the new Plan and ensure strong consultation. The project partners want to work closely with community and stakeholders to ensure that the Plan addresses what matters most to our industries and communities.
RDAEP has undertaken stakeholder engagement by way of a series of regional workshops and survey, to inform the plan’s development.
