The Far West Regional Plan is a 20-year blueprint for the future of the Far West.


The NSW Government’s vision for the Far West is to create a diverse economy, supported by the right infrastructure, an exceptional natural environment and resilient communities.


The Far West region consists of the following Local Government Areas: Balranald Shire, Bourke Shire, Brewarrina Shire, Central Darling Shire, City of Broken Hill, Cobar Shire, Walgett Shire and Wentworth Shire.


Review and update of the Regional Plan

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


The review is involving consultation with councils, community representatives, industry organisations and other stakeholders.


The updated draft Far West Regional Plan 2041 will be on exhibition and open for your feedback from mid- 2022.


The updated plan will build on the current Far West Regional Plan 2036.
