“Speaking for the Region”
-Maximising opportunities for the Hunter through a unified voice-
The September 2018 release of The Greater Newcastle Metropolitan Plan 2036 https://www.planning.nsw.gov.au/~/media/Files/DPE/Plans-and-policies/greater-newcastle-metropolitan-plan-2018.ashx reminds us that communities prosper when a strategic approach to planning and a shared vision incorporates all tiers of government, business, industry and community.
Building on the experience of other cities around the world, including Bilbao, Spain, Portland, USA, Halifax, Canada and Cardiff, Wales, the plan envisions Newcastle and the Hunter as a globally significant, dynamic, entrepreneurial, desirable and national leader in the new economy.
The Committee for the Hunter was established to maximise opportunities for the Hunter through a unified voice.
Newcastle Institute will host a forum on the The Greater Newcastle Metropolitan Plan 2036 and the Committee for the Hunter.
