Great Southern Regional Blueprint released

The Great Southern Regional Blueprint has been released following public comment. Keston technologies played a key role in helping to develop the Blueprint, which seeks to plot the Great Southern region’s future out to 2040.

Four main themes or ‘regional imperatives’ drive the Blueprint and its vision for the region’s future:

  • Economic growth and diversification
  • Infrastructure and services
  • Knowledge and innovation
  • Community and environment

Putting these drivers against the big trends of the coming decades, the Blueprint sets out seven project areas that stand out as the key to a strong and bright future for the region:

  • Growing Value: Premium food production and value adding
  • Access to Energy: Providing regional energy security
  • Water for Growth: Providing water security
  • Avenues to Opportunity: Transport and industry hubs connecting to markets
  • Connected Great Southern: Networks and skills for the digital age
  • Destination of Natural Choice: Enhancing iconic and creative tourism in a unique region
  • Strong Communities: Develop community cohesion and amenity
