Riverina Murray

The Riverina Murray Regional Plan is a 20-year land-use plan for the Riverina Murray.

The NSW Government’s vision for the Riverina Murray is to support a diverse economy founded on Australia’s food bowl, iconic waterways supported by the right infrastructure and a strong network of vibrant, connected and resilient communities.

The Riverina Murray region consists of 20 local government areas: Albury, Berrigan, Bland, Carrathool, Coolamon, Cootamundra-Gundagai, Edward River, Federation, Greater Hume, Griffith, Hay, Junee, Leeton, Lockhart, Murray River, Murrumbidgee, Narrandera, Snowy Valleys, Temora and Wagga Wagga.

Draft Riverina Murray Regional Plan 2041 

The draft Riverina Murray 2041 plan was on public exhibition from 21 July to 12 September 2022.

The plan is undergoing its first 5-yearly review to reset its priorities and to extend the plan’s reach to 2041.

During exhibition the department conducted a number of online workshops with councils, the community, Local Aboriginal Land Councils and other stakeholders.

The department thanks everyone who took the time and effort to participate in a workshop, make a formal submission and give us your feedback in other ways.

The department will now closely consider how the submissions and feedback will be incorporated into the final plan that will be released later in 2022.
