Regional Spatial & Economic Strategy for the Eastern & Midland Region - Pre Draft Issues Paper

The Issues Paper is the first stage in the process of making a Regional Spatial and Economic Strategy (RSES).  It is an informative document to highlight some of the key issues facing the region and to assist people in making their submission to this initial consultation process.

What are the relevant strategic planning responses to these 10 key questions:

  1. How can we align the location of population growth, employment and housing, by 2030?
  2. How can we plan for healthier and more attractive places?
  3. How can we balance the economic, environment and social dimensions for a better region?
  4. How can we address regional disparities for more balanced regional development?
  5. What are the key strategic natural assets we need to protect?
  6. How do we address water and waste water capacity issues in our large urban centres?
  7. How can we build a strong cultural identity and tourism brand for our region?
  8. What are the key infrastructure bottlenecks that ‘unlock’ the growth potential of key sites in our region?
  9. How do we support national commitments and respond to climate change in our region?
  10. How do we measure the success of the RSES?
