Five + Thirty One City Deals
On 12th October representatives from all levels of government, the not-for-profit sector and leading experts came together to explore how the Government’s City Deals can help our Great Small Cities to prosper. The event was an opportunity for regional city leaders to come together with other key players, to identify and discuss issues regarding the new City Deals policy and build momentum for positive development across Australia.
To help you get your own region ready for City Deals, we have compiled the presentations from the event.
