Question Without Notice No. 980 asked in the Legislative Council on 7 December 2017 by Hon Colin Holt

Parliament: 40 Session: 1
Answered on

      980. Hon COLIN HOLT to the Minister for Regional Development:
      (1) Will the Collie futures fund implement the recommendations of the Collie Economic Development Task Force report?
(2) When will the project commence?
(3) Has a Collie futures fund committee been established; and, if so, who are its members?
(4) How will local stakeholders be consulted?
I thank the member for the question.
      (1) The report's recommendations will be considered in the planning for the allocation of the Collie future fund. But I note that the report was produced in the dying days of the last government and it purports to build on the success of the SuperTowns project, so I am not sure how much value it will add to our deliberations.
(2)–(3) Governance arrangements for the fund are being finalised with funding available this financial year.
      (4) Local stakeholder engagement will be a core component of the fund governance arrangements. It is anticipated there will be a specific community reference group.
