Elton Consulting helped the Regional NSW team from the former Department of Premier and Cabinet (now part of Department of Planning, Industry and Environment) to develop a Roadmap to Collaboration between Western Sydney and the Illawarra Shoalhaven regions.
We consulted with key stakeholders from Western Sydney and Illawarra Shoalhaven (including local councils, Regional Development Australia, University of Wollongong, NSW Government agencies and Illawarra Shoalhaven Joint Organisation) to identify cross-regional opportunities for collaboration. This included holding a series of workshops, researching current and future population and employment trends, and developing a roadmap document that identifies actions for both regions.
The Western Sydney and Illawarra Shoalhaven Roadmap to Collaboration was launched at Parliament House in September 2019 by Hon. Gareth Ward MP for Kiama and Minister for Families, Communities and Disability Services.
