The RDA - Northern Inland NSW Committee

The Regional Development Australia- Northern Inland Committee's main role through its strategic plan is to assist with the development and strengthening of the communities within the region. The communities vary in size from larger regional service centres through to isolated rural districts with an associated scattered population. This population pattern does mean there has to be a commitment by all organisations at all levels to adopt local solutions for service delivery while being conscious of regional responsibilities and economies of scale through the many strategic plans which currently exist or are under development by commonwealth, state, regional and local organisations.
In addition, many former services which were delivered by Government are now within the administration of the private sector. One of the Committee's key roles is to assist with assessing the need for certain service delivery through consultation with communities, organisations, businesses and individuals.  This will be done through mechanisms set up under the plan to ensure, where possible, both limited financial and human resources are utilised in an efficient and effective way throughout the region.  
A key aspect for the Committee is to take a leadership role in bringing together the vast array of organisations in the region which in many cases have been competing directly for the delivery of many of the services required by individuals and their communities. This will assist in the elimination of duplication and overlap and where a mutual regional boundary exists, adopt a strategy with the adjoining regional committee to assist with interests and issues surrounding the common boundary.
