We help make the ideas and aspirations of the community a reality. Driving the coordinated action across all levels of government to make a real difference.

We will:

How will we work with the community?

The people of the Valley have put a lot of work into looking at their future and there are already dozens of reports and plans on how to diversify the local economy and take advantage of new opportunities. We will collaborate with the community to deliver on plans for new jobs and a stronger economic, social and environmental future.
