Introduction

The NSW Government in collaboration with local councils is working to develop Regional Economic Development Strategies (REDS) for regions in NSW. The REDS will be used to inform regional development policy and identify actions that can be undertaken to support economic growth in your region.

An important component of the REDS is to ensure that regional communities, business and industries have a say.

Sapere Research Group has been engaged by the NSW Government to assist developing the REDS for the Upper North West region which encompasses the Inverell Shire, Gwydir Shire, Moree Plains Shire and Narrabri council areas. Sapere is conducting this survey to gain a better understanding of the economic development issues and opportunities in the region. The results of this survey will provide valuable inputs into the analysis that forms the basis of the new economic development strategy.


Please complete the survey providing as much detail as possible. The survey should take about 15 minutes. Your responses are strictly confidential and will only be used to determine group responses and specific industry suggestions for improving regional economic development opportunities.

Thank you in advance for taking the time.

If you have any questions with regard to this survey please contact Richard Tooth at rtooth@srgexpert.com
