IDC respond to major projects


The State Government Inter Departmental Committee (IDC) provided its formal response to the “G21 Priority Projects” on March 24.

The Premier established the IDC for G21 in late 2007 in order to provide cross-departmental consideration for support and funding assistance of major Geelong Region projects. The ten G21 Priority Projects presented to the IDC late last year are seen as vital in giving effect to the Geelong Region Plan, and are endorsed by all Councils in the G21 region.

The IDC response provides a comprehensive status report on the progress of each of the projects, along with contacts provided by the relevant State government Department/s to further the projects' progress.

G21 is in the process of reviewing the priority projects as we gear up for the 2010 budget process. It is therefore timely to take stock of progress.
