The NSW Government's vision for the Illawarra-Shoalhaven region is: A sustainable future and a resilient community, capable of adapting to changing economic, social and environmental circumstances.
To achieve this vision the Government has set four goals for the region:
- a region with a variety of housing choices, with homes that meet needs and lifestyles;
- a region with communities that are strong, healthy and well-connected;
- a region that makes appropriate use of agricultural and resource lands; and
- a region that protects and enhances the natural environment.
