Economic Growth for the Region

  • Information at a Glance - South Metropolitan Region
  • Key Statistical Information - South Metropolitan Region

    The South West Group, formed in November 1983, is a Voluntary Regional Organisation of Councils (VROC). It comprises the Cities of Cockburn, Fremantle, Melville, and Rockingham, and the Towns of East Fremantle and Kwinana. The South West Group is managed by a Board consisting of the Mayors and CEOs of its member local governments.

    The South West Group seeks to work with these six member Councils and through cooperation with industry, community and the other spheres of government to capture a wide range of opportunities to enhance economic growth as well as supporting a diversity of quality lifestyles whilst servicing and sustaining cohesive, productive communities in an enviable environmental setting.
    The regional profile publication "At a Glance" is prepared by the South West Group every 2 years and contains information about the region and the member Councils. A new format for the 2011 edition has enhanced the marketing and promotional aspects, whilst incorporating a statistical supplement insert that can be updated periodically as new information becomes available
