Annual Report

CHDC Annual Report 2017-18

The 2017–18 financial year can be described as one of progress and achievement for the Central Highlands Development Corporation (CHDC) as it works to put comprehensive regional planning into action. 

It marks the start of implementation of the 2017-2022 Action Plan, a five-year direction to guide CHDC, the Central Highlands Regional Council (CHRC) and other partners towards the 30-year aspirations of the Central Highlands Economic Masterplan (CHEMP).

The Action Plan’s focus is two-fold:
  1. Deepening and broadening existing industry sectors and establishing infrastructure foundations.
  2. Building effective and long-term partnerships to deliver economic outcomes.

As you’ll see in our Annual Report, in the lead up to finalising this strategic framework we have already made excellent headway.
