  • Step 1 Preparing the plan

    The Far West Regional Plan is underpinned by a strong evidence base. Data and evidence was gathered and analysed about population change, the regional economy, the housing and employment markets, the location of important environmental and resource areas and natural hazards.

  • Step 2 Plan on exhibition

    The Draft Far West Regional Plan was on exhibition from 21 December 2016 until 13 March 2017.

    The draft plan has three goals for the region including:

    • A diverse economy with efficient transport and infrastructure networks
    • An exceptional and distinctive natural environment
    • Strong and connected communities

  • Step 3 Submission review period

    We wish to thank the Far West community, local councils, community groups, and peak bodies for having their say on the draft Far West Regional Plan. View the submissions


    We endeavour to remove any personal or sensitive information from your submissions, prior to publishing. If you have any concerns about the submissions, please contact our Western Region office on (02) 6841 2180.

    We are now considering the submissions, including recording and analysing the issues and examining the suggested changes to the draft Plan.

    Once all submissions are considered the final Plan will be prepared and released.  
  • Step 4 Plan approved

    This stage means we have finalised our plan and we are now working with all stakeholders to implement it.
