Regional Development

Our consulting team has significant experience in working with the agencies and organisations typically involved in regional development and, through IRIS, we have strong links with Federal, State and local government in the Illawarra and on the South Coast.

Recent relevant experience includes:

  • Goulburn Mulwaree Economic Development Strategy and Tourism Plan. IRIS is currently in the final stages of completing the EDSTP for the Goulburn Mulwaree LGA. The plan is coming to shape after extensive consultation with community, business leaders and tourism operators.
  • Shoalhaven Economic Development Strategy. Most recently we have completed the Shoalhaven Economic Development Strategy.  The project involved a wide range of government departments and agencies, community  groups and businesses in the development of a strategic plan. The project involved the preparation of economic analysis, the identification and evaluation of key projects, including the development of implementation strategies and regional partnerships and the identification of relevant indicators.
  • Wollongong City Futures Strategy. Helped Council understand resident attitudes and opinions as input to Council’s development of an updated strategic plan.
