Regional Action Plans focus on immediate actions the NSW Government will take to improve outcomes in each region.
Government Ministers and local Members of Parliament consulted with local government and communities to develop the 19 Regional Action Plans aligned to NSW 2021. During extensive consultation (which included 25 meetings across NSW), more than 3,000 community members and stakeholders raised their top priorities. Overwhelmingly, the key themes raised across the State were transport, economic growth and local jobs, and land use planning to protect both the local environment and prime agricultural land.
The actions in each plan represent the NSW Government’s initial response to the priorities raised by communities. These two year plans will complement longer term strategies for the region and the whole of State, to deliver improvements the community expects. Delivery of the Regional Action Plans will be driven locally by Regional Ministers, supported by new cross-government leadership frameworks.
