What is RDAP?

DevelopmentWA's Regional Development Assistance Program (RDAP), with funding support from the State Government, is helping Local Authorities to build communities across Western Australia.

It was established to address the prohibitive costs sometimes associated with developments in regional WA, which can make them unviable for private developers. In addition, the supply of privately developed land is often limited, or non-existent.

Through the RDAP, the State Government provides us with limited funding to deliver regional projects that are essential to supporting the revitalisation and growth of regional towns and centres. Potential projects are assessed against established criteria outlined in the 2015 submission guide.

Under the RDAP, local authorities can apply to DevelopmentWA for assistance to progress potential land development projects in their local government areas.

How to apply for an RDAP Project

Local Government Authorities can download the application form. Please complete as thoroughly as possible as the more information you provide, the greater chance of project approval.

Where possible, please include maps, land tenure information, servicing access and capacity as well as approval requirements.

Remember to include a Council resolution in support of your RDAP application.

Additional supporting information that should be included is:

  • Letter(s) of support from Regional Development Commission(s) or other government agencies
  • Extracts from regional economic blueprints
  • Evidence of authority or agreements with RDL for the use of the land if the development area is Crown land.
