Decentralisation: Think Dubbo!

As Part Of 'Get Out Of The City'

Decentralisation: Think Dubbo!

Parkes MP Mark Coulton is calling for local residents to make their submission before Friday, in response to Labor’s Senate inquiry into the Nationals plan of decentralisation.

The Nationals’ policy aims to boost regional areas by encouraging more government offices and agencies to relocate to the country.

To boost the number of submissions, the party launched a new "Get Out of the City" campaign.

Mr Coulton says, "every public service job in a regional town flows through the community and means more money for the local coffee shop, to the local mechanic, implores doctors to move there, schools to grow and helps to deliver better transport services.

Submissions can be made via by March 10, 2017.
