The Central West and Orana Regional Plan 2036 is a 20-year blueprint for the future of the Central West and Orana region.


We are currently undertaking the first 5-year review to extend the plan to 2041 and to reset priorities.


We are consulting widely with council stakeholders, peak bodies and the community to develop a draft.


The updated draft of the Central West and Orana Regional Plan 2041 will be on exhibition and open for feedback in November 2021.


The Central West and Orana region consists of 19 local government areas: Bathurst Regional, Blayney, Bogan, Cabonne, Coonamble, Cowra, Dubbo Regional, Forbes, Gilgandra, Lachlan, Lithgow, Mid-Western Regional, Narromine, Oberon, Orange, Parkes, Warren, Warrumbungle and Weddin.
