Geelong City Deal means Partnership’s top priorities get the go ahead

Many of the Barwon Regional Partnership’s top priorities have been given the green light with the recent funding agreement of the Geelong City Deal.

The City Deal, agreed by Local, State and Commonwealth Governments, will inject $370 million towards new infrastructure projects across the wider region.

Major projects within the City Deal include:

  • The Geelong Convention and Exhibition Centre,
  • Projects under Stage Two of the Shipwreck Coast Master Plan (a joint Barwon and Great South Coast Partnership priority),
  • The redevelopment of the Apollo Bay harbour and
  • Revitalisation of central Geelong.

These projects are expected to create new jobs, attract visitors from across the country and boost the region’s economy by $1.1 billion each year.

“The Barwon Regional Partnership played a key role in getting regional stakeholders around the table to agree to priorities,” explains Barwon Partnership Chair Kylie Warne.

“We’re really excited to see the Geelong City Deal signed,” she adds.
