Proudly sponsored by

Guest Speakers:  Eamon Waterford, Acting CEO Committee for Sydney and  Kyle Loades, former Chairman of NRMA who led a steering committee on the so-called Mega-region.

In early 2017, the Committee for Sydney started on a pathway to investigate the potential impact of closer relationships between Newcastle, the Central Coast, Wollongong and Sydney. The thinking was influenced by evidence from overseas that ‘mega-regions’ can deliver more successful outcomes compared with the cities that they comprise.
In June 2018, the Committee for Sydney released The Sandstone Mega-Region report which amongst its conclusions, recommended the mega-region explore the development of a plan for connectivity by fast rail. It also recommended there be a review of existing governance arrangements across the region and identified the need for the development of a holistic economic strategy for the mega-region.
So what is the evidence that led to the conclusion in the report? What are the implications for Newcastle and the Hunter? What does the future look like under the long term scenario?
Newcastle businessman, Kyle Loades was chair of the Steering Committee that propositioned and advanced the report and will provide a contextual introduction to the presentation from Committee for Sydney Acting CEO, Eamon Waterford. Given the pending release on the Greater Newcastle Metropolitan Plan, the thoughts behind the mega-region concept will be of vital interest to gauge how Newcastle and the Hunter can benefit from working with these other cities.

This event is not to be missed. Book early to avoid disappointment.
