Who we are

Regional Development Australia Mid North Coast (RDAMNC) is a voice and an advocate for the Mid North Coast region. We act as a link between all levels of government, industry and our community, analysing local priorities, communicating the issues clearly and bringing key players together to produce real outcomes for the region.

Our primary focus is on economic development that affects the wider region and delivers a positive outcome. This might be to encourage more jobs, public or private investment, industry growth or a greater capacity for our region to compete. RDA is a collaborative organisation; we always work in partnership with others to achieve these goals.

The flagship document of RDA Mid North Coast is our Regional Plan which outlines the priorities for regional development on the Mid North Coast and guides us in strengthening the communities in our region.

Our vision

The Mid North Coast is a place of innovation, opportunity, inclusion and economic prosperity.

Our organisation

Many people don’t realise that RDA is a not for profit organisation. As such, we have to focus on outcome-based projects that are funded and address regional priorities. RDA Mid North Coast is partly funded by the Commonwealth Government. We are made up of local people, developing local solutions for the Mid North Coast region.

The staff of RDA Mid North Coast have a variety of specialist skills to implement our core services and manage key projects. The staff are led by our CEO and are governed by a committee.

Our committee is comprised of members from a variety of industries and interests across the Mid North Coast.

The office of RDA Mid North Coast is located at Level 1, Suites 9&10, 111 William St, Port Macquarie. This office serves the Mid North Coast region. The Mid North Coast encompasses the local government areas of Port Macquarie – Hastings, Kempsey Shire, Nambucca Shire, Bellingen Shire, Coffs Harbour, Lord Howe Island and the community of Taree.

We are part of a national network of 55 RDA committees that work to support the development of regional Australia. RDA Mid North Coast is administered by the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development and is an Australian Government initiative.
