Help Northern Rivers secure a share of $1.3 billion in funding by completing on line survey

Want to help the Northern Rivers secure its fair share of $1.3 billion in State Government funding to improve infrastructure, create liveable and resilient communities and generate jobs?

If you do want to help and you are a local business owner, operator or manager you are being urged to complete an on-line survey to help with the development of the Northern Rivers Regional Economic Development Strategy.

The strategy is being developed by consultants Corview and when complete will enable the Northern Rivers to apply for grants under the State Government’s $1.3 billion Regional Growth Fund.

Corview has already held a series of workshops across the Northern Rivers including one at Kyogle involving key stakeholders to identify:

  • the region’s economic strengths and advantages
  • current and potential economic growth opportunities
  • current and potential constraints or risks to growth
  • and prioritise actions to address each growth opportunity or constraint.

The online survey is the next step in the process and business owners, operators and managers throughout the Northern Rivers, including the Kyogle Council area, are strongly urged to take part.

The survey takes just 15 minutes to complete and responses are strictly confidential. It will close on 31 January 2018.
