Year 12 attainment
The numbers of young people in the Great South Coast region achieving Year 12 or equivalent are among the lowest in the State. The Great South Coast Group is developing a series of actions and strategies for long-term change aimed at boosting the aspirations of our young people.
Food and Fibre production
What is the true value of agriculture to our region? The Great South Coast Group is now seeking to build an accurate picture of the economic and social impacts of food and fibre production in this region.
The 'Sustain our Natural Assets' Pillar is exploring the potential to develop a region-wide Nature-based Tourism Strategy. This will aim to protect our natural assets, ensuring they're available for future generations to enjoy!
Great South Coast Transport Strategy
This important strategy is nearing completion. It sets out the key freight transport and tourism routes and predicts future loads.
The cumulative impacts of major wind farm developments and freight transport have had a major impacts on the Great South Coast arterial road network. With State Government expenditure on maintenance dropping, the state of our roads is sharply declining. The Great South Coast is preparing a sound business case to ensure roads in our region are a top priority for the State Government.
