  • Preparing the Plan

    We are gathering evidence about the Riverina-Murray region to help inform the development of a draft Regional Plan. 

    Once the draft Plan is finalised, it will be released for community consultation.

  • Plan on exhibition 

    For the first time, a draft Plan consolidates the strategic planning for the 26 local government areas that comprise the Riverina-Murray region.

    The Plan outlines goals for the region including: 

    • a growing economy supported by productive agriculture and sustainable use of natural resources
    • improved regional transport networks and utility infrastructure to support economic activity
    • strong regional cities supported by a network of liveable towns and villages that meet the communities changing needs; and
    • a protected environment and a community resilient to natural hazards and climate change.

  • Submission review period

    We wish to thank the Riverina-Murray community, local councils, community groups, and peak bodies for having their say on the draft Riverina-Murray Regional Plan.


    We have endeavoured to remove any personal or sensitive information from your submissions, prior to publishing. If you have any concerns about the published submissions, please contact our Western Region office on (02) 6841 2180.


    We are now considering the submissions, including recording and analysing the issues and examining the suggested changes to the draft Plan.


    Once all submissions are considered, the final Plan will be prepared and released.

  • Plan approved

    The Riverina Murray Regional Plan 2036 is a 20-year blueprint for the future of the Riverina Murray.


    The Riverina Murray region in 2036 will be a diversified economy founded on Australia’s food bowl, iconic waterways and a strong network of vibrant and connected communities.


    We will deliver our vision for the region through four goals:

    • A growing and diverse economy
    • A healthy environment with pristine waterways
    • Efficient transport and infrastructure networks
    • Strong, connected and healthy communities
