The Torres Strait Development Plan 2014-2018 was developed by the TSRA as required by section 142D of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Act 2005 (Cth). The plan outlines eight TSRA programmes, listing the desired outcomes and benefits to be delivered. The Torres Strait Development Plan 2014-2018 is published on the TSRA website, www.tsra.gov.au.
The Torres Strait Development Plan 2014-2018 is derived directly from the Torres Strait and Northern Peninsula Area Regional Plan 2009-2029. The regional plan was developed by the TSRA, the Torres Shire Council, the Torres Strait Island Regional Council and the Northern Peninsula Area Regional Council, in consultation with Torres Strait communities. The regional plan identifies community challenges, priorities and aspirations. A key element of the plan is its focus on integrated development planning and integrated service delivery. This process aims to coordinate the effective delivery of a range of government services to local communities while ensuring that duplication and service gaps are minimised.
