Survey – Regional Economic Development Strategies
The NSW Government in collaboration with local councils is working to develop Regional Economic Development Strategies (REDS) for regions in NSW. The REDS will be used to inform regional development policy and identify actions that can be undertaken to support economic growth in your region.
An important component of the REDS is to ensure that regional communities, business and industries have a say.
Sapere Research Group has been engaged by the NSW Government to assist developing the REDS for the Upper North West region which encompasses the Inverell Shire, Gwydir Shire, Moree Plains Shire and Narrabri council areas. Sapere is conducting this survey to gain a better understanding of the economic development issues and opportunities in the region. The results of this survey will provide valuable inputs into the analysis that forms the basis of the new economic development strategy.
Please complete the survey providing as much detail as possible. The survey should take about 15 minutes. Your responses are strictly confidential and will only be used to determine group responses and specific industry suggestions for improving regional economic development opportunities.
Thank you in advance for taking the time.
If you have any questions with regard to this survey please contact Richard Tooth at firstname.lastname@example.org

Gwydir Shire Council is seeking expressions of interest from young people who want to make a difference in their community. The Youth Council will meet on a monthly basis and inform decisions made by Gwydir Shire Council on their behalf.
This is your opportunity to make a difference and be involved in the change you want to see.
Youth councils are a form of youth voice engaged in community decision-making. Youth councils exist on local, state, provincial, regional, national, and international levels among governments, non-government organisations (NGO), schools, and other entities.
BENEFITS OF JOINING A YOUTH COUNCIL
The benefits young people gain from participating in a youth council depend on what each member puts into the council. If young people make the most of their opportunities they will:
- learn how to work with other young people
- build strong and lasting friendships
- develop greater self-esteem and self-confidence
- develop communication skills
- develop leadership skills
- develop organisational skills
- gain self-worth and inner-strength to battle negative peer pressure
- develop winning attitudes
- learn how to take responsibility for their actions
- contribute to making a difference in their community

The Gwydir Learning Region (GLR) offers a “Learn to Drive” program. Our senior instructor, Kingsley Grills, is experienced in teaching new drivers in the safe use of vehicles, from small sedans through to ‘big rigs’.
If you are a beginner driver or you need to learn the skills required for safe driving on country roads then the GLR “Learn to Drive” experience is for you. If you have teenage children who have had some “family driving time” but who could do with some extra help before taking their first driving test, the GLR “Learn to Drive” experience is for you.
A great gift for a loved one is to make them a better driver. Why not consider a set of GLR “Learn to Drive” lessons. Lessons are $55 each. Each lasts for a minimum of one hour and, if you purchase five lessons, the sixth one is free!
Driving lessons with a Licensed Driving Instructor – 3 for 1
For every one hour structured driving lesson you complete with a licensed Driving Instructor, you can record three hours driving experience in your Log Book. A maximum of 10 hours of lessons will be accepted and recorded as 30 hours driving experience.
This doesn’t mean that driving lessons with an instructor are compulsory, or that you should stop having lessons once you reach the 10 hour limit if you feel you’d benefit from more lessons.
Driving lessons at night (between sunset and sunrise) count for only one hour of night driving. The other two hours are added to your day driving hours.
LOG IT! – Be sure to record these sessions in your Structured Lesson Record Keeper log book insert.
To book in for your GLR “Learn to Drive” lessons contact the instructor, Kingsley Grills on 0417 320 354 or the GLR Manager, Rick Hutton on 0438 355197.

Country roads can be killers. Drivers who are not experienced in driving long distances, driving through sun and shadow, driving on tar and on gravel, and driving when roads are wet or grooved, or when the conditions change suddenly, are likely to get just ‘one chance to learn’ before tragedy strikes.
Be sure and certain and not sad and sorry. Train with the experts!
