Business as usual at SWDC

Tuesday, 4 July 2017

As a new era begins in the public sector, it is business as usual at the South West Development Commission.

Although SWDC staff members are now employed by the new Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, the statutory authority remains dedicated to making the South West an even better place to live, work and invest.

There are currently no changes to the daily operation of the Commission. Stakeholders will be informed of any developments during the transition process, which is expected to take about 12 months.

SWDC acting chief executive officer Ashley Clements said the Commission would continue to work with stakeholders on projects and services that improve quality of life and enhance the economy.

"As a region-building organisation, we look forward to continuing to work with you to deliver outcomes that will make a positive impact in the region, now and in the future," he said.

The new Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development comprises the former departments of Agriculture and Food, Fisheries and Regional Development, along with staff of the nine regional development commissions.

The amalgamation has been made as part of the State Government's wide-ranging overhaul of the public sector. As part of the changes, SWDC staff members are now employed by the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, but continue to service the day-to-day work of the Commission and its CEO.
