Bright future ahead: Mia Davies and Paul Brown.THE Nationals see a bright future for the Avon and Wheatbelt and are not alone in this optimism.
Each community in the region has a distinctive identity and history, yet despite this there are many more similarities than differences.
In many ways, the Avon and Wheatbelt can be defined by the people that have chosen to live, work and invest in the region.
There is a unique social fabric that holds them all together, draws people in in times of crisis, nurtures our youth, honours our elderly, celebrates our history and seeks out a sustainable future.
There is tradition laced with innovation and modernism whether it is cutting edge technologies and science applied in the agricultural sector, new industry or the evolution of small businesses in a global marketplace.
In these prosperous economic times, there is real opportunity for regional Western Australia and in particular, the Avon and Wheatbelt.
With the State’s economy and lifestyle driving significant population increase, the region is ideally placed to play a key role in accommodating and capitalising on this growth.
There are existing key transport and infrastructure corridors.
There is land availability and we are blessed with fabulous natural assets.
The Nationals know that investment is required to capitalise on these opportunities and we’re delighted there is an opportunity to deliver another four years of the iconic regional development program Royalties for Regions.
This billion-dollar-a-year fund is beginning to address significant shortfalls in infrastructure and services across the state.
It is focusing the attention of government on the regions.
Far from being just a cheque book, it’s about how the state prioritises spending and policy in every portfolio across government for the benefit of regional communities.
Significant funding has already been delivered to improve schools, health services, to provide much needed affordable housing, for vital community infrastructure and to attract and retain key workers in the region.
The Nationals are working hard to support our small businesses because they are the lifeblood of our communities, generating jobs and providing valuable goods and services close to home.
It will invest $300 million into the agricultural sector over the next four years.
Local member Mia Davies and Paul Brown choose to live and work in the region.
They share the aspiration for the Avon and Wheatbelt to be the best place to live, work and invest in the State.
The electorate office is located at the entrance of The Boulevard in Northam and our friendly staff, Theresa Middis and Barbara Silvester look forward to working with you.
