The Peel Development Commission wishes to thank all those who have provided feedback on the Peel Regional Investment Blueprint.
The Blueprint identifies goals and strategies encompassed within five themes considered pivotal to the region’s future:
Thriving industry – a broadened and diversified industry base to boost the depth and breadth of employment across the region.
Agriculture and food innovation – increased economic expansion, market base and international competitiveness of the region’s agribusiness sector through innovation in production methods and renewable water and energy supplies.
Tourism excellence – a network of natural adventures that attracts visitors and enables them to engage with the Peel’s natural and built attractions in a sustainable manner.
Capable people – the availability of an educated and highly skilled workforce with the capacity and capability to flexibly respond to workforce requirements of the future.
Strong and resilient communities – creation of support services and infrastructure that will ensure the community is strong and resilient and able to increase its participation in, and contribution to, the future development of the Peel.
Each theme highlights a number of focus areas, against which strategies for implementation and potential investment opportunities have been identified.
Implementation will be led by the Peel Development Commission and will occur through continued communication, consultation and collaboration with regional stakeholders.
The Regional Investment Blueprint initiative is supported by a $330 million investment through the State Government’s Royalties for Regions program.
The Blueprint monitoring and review process undertaken by the Commission enabled the production of scorecards for each of the Blueprint themes. The scorecards provide an overview of achievements and the short term plans of regional stakeholders identified during the review process.
