The Far West Regional Plan is a 20-year strategic blueprint for the future of the region. The NSW Government’s vision for the Far West is to create communities that can adapt to change, supported by a diverse economy, the right infrastructure and an exceptional natural environment.
The Far West region includes the following local government areas:
- Balranald Shire
- Bourke Shire
- Brewarrina Shire
- Central Darling Shire
- City of Broken Hill
- Cobar Shire
- Walgett Shire
- Wentworth Shire and the Unincorporated Area.
Draft Far West Regional Plan 2041
We are doing the first 5-year review of the original plan to extend it to 2041 and reset its priorities. We have consulted councils, peak bodies, NSW Government agencies and other stakeholders to prepare a draft, updated Far West Regional Plan 2041.
The draft, updated Far West Regional Plan 2041 was on public exhibition from 6 October to 21 November 2022. The department is now closely considering how the submissions and feedback will be incorporated into the final plan.
