Regional Policy and Programs Division
The Regional Policy and Programs Division facilitates and drives delivery of collaborative and evidence-based strategic outcomes across the range of action areas identified in the Hunter JO Strategic Plan. We work with a wide range of external stakeholders including member Councils (staff and elected officials), State and Commonwealth Government agencies, research institutions, business and community groups on a range of regional initiatives involving research, planning, advocacy and project management.
The Division is responsible for delivering the long established and respected Environment (HCCREMS) Program, a collaborative effort of the eleven councils of the Hunter and Central Coast. The Environment Program delivers directly on the action area from the Hunter JO’s Strategic Plan to “protect the enviable environment for future generations and ensure resources are used efficiently”.
