RDA Committees in New South Wales (NSW) are funded by the Australian and NSW Governments and administered by the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development and the NSW Department of Trade and Investment.

There are 14 RDA Committees in NSW covering all areas of the State, including an RDA Committee for Sydney which covers the greater Sydney metropolitan area.

NSW RDA Committees work to drive regional economic development and unlock the economic potential of their regions. They are comprised of local leaders with broad and diverse skills and experience, as well as demonstrated networks within their region. Committee members are individuals who understand the challenges, opportunities and priorities within their local community.

In NSW, RDA Committees:

  • are responsible for detailed regional plans that focus on the economic development of their region, taking into account relevant Commonwealth, state, territory and local government plans,
  • provide independent advice to government on critical issues affecting their region,
  • work closely with community leaders to identify priority activities that will drive regional economic development,
  • provide assistance to local communities to identify funding sources and develop project proposals to support economic growth, and
  • promote awareness of government programmes in the RDA community.

Further information on the role of RDA Committees in NSW can be found at the NSW Department of Trade and Investment website.
