RDA Illawarra submitted the following submission to an Australian Senate Inquiry on the 'Relocation of Government Bodies to Regional Areas'.
The letter lists the many benefits of the Illawarra, which the government should take into consideration when seeking relocation of government bodies. The highlighted benefits included the advantageous proximity of the Illawarra to both Sydney and Canberra as well as the university, the expanding capacity of the Port of Port Kembla, the tier 3 Data Centre and the comparably lower property prices than Sydney.
RDA Illawarra strongly made the case that the Illawarra and Wollongong City in particular, is a globally connected, innovative city with superb liveability and a transformed CBD precinct.
