Postby HVPA_research » Fri Mar 02, 2012 3:04 pm

Friday, 2 March, 2012. Gas Watch 138. “NSW 2021” – Regional Action Plan – A State Government Initiative.

BARRY O’FARRELL: “Through this plan, the people of NSW can hold me and my team accountable for our achievements against our commitments.”

On Wednesday evening we attended the NSW Government’s community discussion evening at Maitland where they sought community input into Regional Action Plans. You can go to http://2021.nsw.gov.au/to have a look at the priorities raised by the community for the Hunter, and you can go to http://www.haveyoursay.nsw.gov.au/topic/hunter if you want to have input into the Regional Action Plan.

The 5 main priorities to come out of the forum were, although this will change after each meeting:
· Economic growth – diversify the economy, support clean tech industries, promote tourism, build critical infrastructure, skills development.
· Planning for the Newcastle CBD – revitalize the city, rail decision, all levels of government to work together, remove red tape that works against development.
· Environment protection – best environmental practice in mining and coal seam gas.
· Liveability – more affordable housing, improved transport links, attract events to the region.
· Support the most vulnerable members of our community.
