What we do

Our services are delivered through four strategic priority areas:

  • Infrastructure – We develop distance neutral infrastructure that is linked to world opportunities and respects our environment.
  • Industry and Business – We support a broad internationally engaged industry base that is business ready and Asia capable.
  • People and Place – We seek to develop a region of first choice, building population and improved amenity.
  • Community – We drive and support agendas that promote cohesive, vibrant and engaged communities.

Examples of how we help

  • Projects Recent examples by SWDC include the development of the Busselton-Margaret River Regional Airport, Transforming Bunbury's Waterfront project, and the Collie EconomicDevelopmentTaskforce.
  • Research Activities Recent research activities undertaken by SWDC include the South West Active Ageing Research Project, and an action plan for transforming agriculture in the South West.
  • Provision of Information Information provided to individuals and businesses both inside and outside the region includes a statistical snapshot of the region, as well as information relating to international trade.
  • Facilitate Interagency Action This refers to the bringing together of relevant parties such as government agencies, private business, local governments and the not-for-profit community sector to identify approvals and other planning pathways for the implementation process, and to problem solve any arising issues.
