Peel Regional Blueprint
The Peel Regional Investment Blueprint provides a shared vision of the Peel as a progressive, prosperous, and dynamic region and outlines strategies for regional stakeholders to work towards together to achieve that vision. Each year we provide an update on the collective achievements through the Blueprint Scorecards.
The Blueprint identifies goals and strategies encompassed within five themes considered pivotal to the region’s future:
A broadened and diversified industry base to boost the depth and breadth of employment across the region.
Agriculture & 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.
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.
The availability of an educated and highly skilled workforce with the capacity and capability to flexibly respond to workforce requirements of the future.
Strong & 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.
Wise Use of Our Environment
Driving wise use of our environment to ensure social and economic development balanced with conservation.
Each theme highlights a number of focus areas, against which strategies for implementation and potential investment opportunities have been identified.
In 2019, in acknowledgement of the findings of the 2018 Blueprint monitoring process, we have included a focus on achievements within the Wise Use of our Environment as a key element underpinning how we want our region to operate.
Implementation is 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.
