The Hinkler Regional Deal is a 5 year commitment between the Australian Government, Bundaberg Regional Council and Fraser Coast Regional Council for the Bundaberg and Hervey Bay region and its surrounds.
The Australian Government has committed $172.9 million towards the Deal, supported by over $90 million in investment from Bundaberg and Fraser Coast Regional Councils and other key implementation partners.
The Hinkler Regional Deal Implementation Plan is centred around three core themes:
Invest in job creation
Promote business growth
Develop a skilled workforce
Enhance the resilience of the community and the environment
Liveability and Community
Build strong and cohesive local communities
Ensure the area is a destination of choice for generations to come
The Hinkler Regional Deal Implementation Plan sets out governance arrangements, key milestones for projects, timeframes and who will be responsible for delivery. Delivery is occurring in partnership with a variety of government and non-government organisations, building the partnerships necessary for the region.
