The Cradle Coast Region is complex and made up of overlapping places, communities and industry sectors. Improving regional economic growth and prosperity for our residents spans many  organisations and responsibilities.

The Cradle Coast Authority (CCA) exists to help connect communities, business and government to work together for the good of the region.

CCA’s regional economic development team exists to provide a lean and agile platform for developing and supporting new ways of working together on the complex tasks that are not effectively being dealt with separately.

It builds on the ability of our communities to develop and implement locally-owned solutions.
