The New England North West is one of Australia’s most productive agricultural regions. It also has significant biodiversity, nationally recognised tourist destinations and growing mineral resource and renewable energy sectors.


The New England North West Regional Plan 2036 is a 20-year blueprint for the future of the region focussing on land-use planning.


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


The review will involve consultation with local and state government representatives.


The updated New England North West Regional Plan 2041 will be on exhibition and open for your feedback in November 2021.
