The Wheatbelt Regional Investment Blueprint articulates a vision for the Region and provides a framework to guide future growth.

The Wheatbelt Blueprint will be open for public comment from Friday, 23 May 2014 to Friday 18 July 2014. The Blueprint and related documents can be viewed on the Blueprint publications page.
