The Restart NSW Illawarra Infrastructure Fund involved the development and implementation of a stakeholder and community engagement program and media relations strategy for Infrastructure NSW.
The program aims to fund priority infrastructure projects in the Illawarra region, using proceeds from the 99-year lease of Port Kembla.
Launched in June 2013, Elton Consulting lead the process to generate community awareness and feedback.
Feedback on infrastructure priorities for the region was gathered via five community forums held across the Illawarra and a ‘Have Your Say’ website.
Elton Consulting also established a Local Leaders’ Group for the project to gain input from local Councils, business organisations and peak bodies.
Successful projects were announced in December 2013.
