The Narrabri Special Activation Precinct was subject to the 2023 NSW Government’s Strategic Infrastructure Review.
The purpose of the review was to ensure capital expenditure delivers maximum benefits to citizens of NSW and is aligned with the government’s strategic objectives and priorities including increasing housing supply in regional NSW.
Following consideration of the review’s findings, the NSW Government has decided not to proceed with this project as a Special Activation Precinct.
The Department of Planning and Environment, along with Narrabri Council, will work together to achieve the best possible outcomes for the community through a state led rezoning that will enable future growth, including improvements to the town centre, land for more housing and light industrial purposes.
The planning framework is expected to be exhibited in early 2024.
