Regional identity is not facilitated by Government boundaries at all level of the region. The Australian Government programs such as Keep Australia Working MNC is not synchronised with RDA MNC councils boundaries. The NSW Government State Plan identifies the North Coast as defined region which includes RDA MNC, RDA Northern Rivers and a portion of the RDA Hunter. The six local councils in the MNC have an informal group which unlike other regional organisations of councils is not incorporated and therefore has limited capacity to act as an agent for Government Project delivery.
