State Development

Regional Planning Refocus

We believe there is vast potential in regional WA, and that we need to focus on diversifying the state beyond Perth. By investing in regional health, education, transport, power and water infrastructure across the state, we will grow WA jobs, unlock vast economic potential and reduce the pressure on Perth's overloaded facilities.

Sadly, the realities of democracy mean that with all of the WA population in Perth, decisions are made by Governments that predominantly benefit people in Perth, because that is where the voters are. But we believe it is in the interests of Perth, and its population, if pressure is reduced on the city and we invest more in other parts of the state to grow our other fantastic cities and towns.
