Ellenbrook Advocate - - NEWS -

A TECH­NI­CAL tour or­gan­ised as part of the Na­tional Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment Con­fer­ence would pro­vide a valu­able insight into key projects in the Perth met­ro­pol­i­tan area, ac­cord­ing to City of Swan Mayor Mick Wain­wright.

Cr Wain­wright said the pre­con­fer­ence tour would fo­cus on cur­rent tourism, eco­nomic and in­fra­struc­ture de­vel­op­ment projects.

“The tour will start within the City of Swan and show­case some of our ma­jor projects and our beau­ti­ful re­gion be­fore head­ing into the Perth CBD where we will dis­cuss some ma­jor State Gov­ern­ment projects,” he said.

“As we travel through the Swan Val­ley, we will pro­vide a brief his­tory of the re­gion and its im­por­tance for tourism.

“This is Western Aus­tralia’s old­est wine grow­ing re­gion and Aus­tralia’s first Hu­mane Food Re­gion.

“We will also dis­cuss the City’s Mid­land Oval Re­de­vel­op­ment Mas­ter plan, which will trans­form the precinct into a fresh, vi­brant and unique cen­tre for Mid­land.”

North Ward Coun­cil­lor Kevin Bailey said the tour would also take in Met­ro­pol­i­tan Re­de­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity (MRA) works, par­tic­u­larly the re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion of the Mid­land Rail­way Work­shops.

The tour will be held on Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 4, from 1pm to 4pm and will leave from the Vines Re­sort and Coun­try Club.
