The Great South Coast Group Inc. is charged with responsibility for rolling out the Regional Strategic Plan.
This plan provides a blueprint for the growth and evolution of our region.
The original plan, created in 2010, was updated in 2014 with the input of the Great South Coast Board, Pillars and a range of other stakeholders.
The Great South Coast (GSC) Cumulative Impact Study 2011 has identified 60 major investment and development projects across the GSC region, equating to $11.6 billion dollars of investment.
The individual projects identified all have their own challenges and rewards for the proponents and the communities spread across the GSC region. The Final Report details these major projects and the overall impacts for the region.
