Managing the impact of State Significant Development

Mid-Western Regional Council (MWRC) engaged PwC to assess the impacts of additional population on services, infrastructure and housing as a result of State Significant Development (SSD) projects within and immediately surrounding the Mid-Western LGA (MWR LGA).

The report provides a point-in-time analysis based on the best data available to assess the cumulative impacts of additional population on services, infrastructure and housing as a result of major projects within and immediately surrounding the MWR LGA.

A series of issues were identified and potential recommendations have been developed to mitigate the impacts for each service sector. The actions and recommendations also identify longer-term opportunities and legacy projects with many focused on utilities infrastructure.
