The councils of the Hunter Joint Organisation are ready to deliver a program of shovel-ready investments in local infrastructure and community facilities to support region-wide recovery from the combined impacts of COVID-19, droughts and fires.
We have identified an integrated, region-wide program of council works that target the communities and sectors most impacted by coronavirus. Delivered collectively, this program will provide immediate and broad stimulus responsive to the particular needs of local regional economies. These investments in essential community facilities and services will improve community wellbeing and quality of life during an uncertain and challenging time, while attracting visitors back to the region. Importantly, these investments will work to diversify the Hunter economy in the longer-term, making us more resilient and self-sufficient in the future.
