Regional Development Australia Mid North Coast seeks feedback on Regional Development Strategic Plan

REGIONAL Development Australia Mid North Coast (RDAMNC) is asking for feedback on its Strategic.

Regional Plan for 2023-33 during a region wide tour and survey during May and June 2023.

The plan is designed to be used as a guiding framework to address the region’s challenges, needs and priorities
for long-term economic growth.

Dr Madeleine Lawler, CEO of RDAMNC, said, “The plan fills a gap in Mid North Coast regional economic development planning, as there are no other strategies which focus on this area as a distinct economic region.

“This plan is designed to provide a multi-level government lens on the regional priorities for the Mid North Coast and will assist local governments and non-profits in ensuring their planned projects and proposals are in line with national priorities for regional Australia.”

The RDAMNC team will be conducting briefing sessions in every Mid North Coast Local Government Area, beginning in Bellingen on May 24, heading to Macksville on 15 June and concluding with Coffs Harbour on June 20 2023.

Sessions will also be held in Kempsey, Port Macquarie and Taree.

RDAMNC invites those that are unable to attend the face-to-face sessions to contribute via the online survey on their website at

Kieren Dell, Chair of RDAMNC, said, “Regional Development Australia Mid North Coast is fortunate to represent one of the most environmentally abundant regions in Australia, which offers its residents an enviable lifestyle in a beautiful, natural environment, with unique and thriving regional towns and cities.

“We see our role as a connector between regional communities, business, government and not-for-profits, a facilitator of change, and an independent voice for our region.

“We will continue to support the Mid North Coast well into the future.”
