Relocating a further 5% of Government Departments to Regional areas.
- Greater accessibility of government services by Western District residents
- Increased job opportunities in Western Victoria
The concentration of government departments in Melbourne makes it difficult for regional residents to access services and also denies country people significant employment opportunities.
Relocating government departments to regional areas will provide greater job security and encourage future generations to gain meaningful employment in their home areas. It will also contribute to reducing the youth drain to Melbourne.
