What We Do
The Wheatbelt Development Commission is a statutory authority of the Western Australian government, with a Board of Management selected from the community, local governments and ministerial appointments. We are the key economic development agency for the region. The Commission partners, plans, facilitates and promotes development that results in the Wheatbelt being a better place to live, work, invest and visit.
The Wheatbelt Blueprint is the strategic plan for the Region; it articulates a vision and growth targets for the Wheatbelt and provides a framework to guide future growth.
