About the Gascoyne Peak Body Project
During consultations for the economic development of the Gascoyne region, many primary industry representatives, members of Government and external stakeholders expressed the need for a single, dedicated peak industry body to represent the interests of the primary producers of the Gascoyne region.
The regional peak body will become the representative voice for the seafood, horticulture and pastoral industries. Critically the peak body will work to promote and protect the best interests of the region’s primary producers.
In developing the representative body there will be industry wide input, consultation, and communication along the way. We greatly value input from the community and primary industries of the Gascoyne region.
The peak body project is not about installing a ready-made industry body. Rather we will seek to understand the needs of the industries and the value that a peak body may have to its members. In doing this the project seeks to be inclusive of all perspectives and to create a peak body which will have true and lasting value for the primary producers of the Gascoyne.
