Regional Precincts and Partnerships Program: Precinct Delivery
The program will focus on a partnership approach to deliver investment in regional Australia. It will bring together governments and communities to plan and deliver regional precincts that are tailored to local needs and have a shared vision in how that precinct connects to the region. Partners can be from government, First Nations groups, community organisations, educational institutions or private enterprise.
Regional precincts or ‘places with a purpose’ are user-defined geographic areas with a specific shared need or theme. Regional precincts may include business districts, neighbourhoods, activity centres, commercial hubs or community and recreational areas. They will be located in renewal areas and growth areas in regional centres, regional corridors, regional cities, as well as smaller town centres that serve as service hubs in more remote communities.
There are two streams of the regional Precincts and Partnerships Program which are delivered as two grant opportunities.
The objective of stream two is to work with partners to support the delivery of precincts that will provide targeted benefits related to productivity, equity, and resilience for regional, rural and remote areas across Australia.
The intended outcomes of stream two are to:
- deliver project/s that form part of a precinct or foundational infrastructure that activates a precinct
- develop and deliver regional precincts comprised of multiple infrastructure components, which provide benefits related to productivity, equity and resilience
- contribute to the Australian Government’s current policy priorities, including but not limited to Closing the Gap, transition to a net zero economy, Australia’s emission reduction goals, social and affordable housing, and National Cultural Policy.
