Regional Plans or Roadmaps are strategic planning documents which were developed by each RDA in Australia. They describe their region's assets, characteristics, industry, employment base and key advantages. They also set out the RDA's vision for the region, and identified priorities.
While under the new RDA reforms there is no longer a requirement for RDAs to develop a 3-5 year Regional Roadmap, RDA Brisbane, for now, is retaining its Regional Roadmap 2020 synopsis which includes a strategic framework for a meaningful contribution to our region's development to 2020. The synopsis sets out the key elements of Regional Vision, Regional Priorities, Planning Framework, RDA Activities, Projects & Initiatives and Work Plan. These were developed from an extensive research process including an analysis of existing plans, reports, statistical evidence and our ongoing stakeholder engagement and collaboration.
With a new RDA Charter now in operation that has an emphasis on harnessing competitive advantage, trade and investment, RDA Brisbane’s planning framework will be adjusted to more closely align with the new directions.
