Draft North Coast Regional Plan 2041

The NSW Government has reviewed and updated the Draft North Coast Regional Plan 2041.

The long-term vision to build a more resilient region to shield communities against natural disasters, protect its spectacular coastline and natural environment, boost tourism, and safeguard Aboriginal land. It also recognises the need for a steady supply of housing in the places where people need it.

The Department of Planning and Environment is working with The Planning Studio to undertake a range of online community engagement activities during the exhibition period to talk with communities, local groups and organisations across the region. These conversations will inform the finalisation of the regional plan.

  • 28 July, Thursday, 6pm-7.30, Northern Rivers communities workshop (Ballina, Byron, Kyogle, Lismore, Richmond Valley and Tweed local government areas)
  • 4 August, Thursday, 6pm-7.30, Mid North Coast communities workshop (Bellingen, Clarence Valley, Coffs Harbour, Kempsey, Nambucca and Port Macquarie-Hastings local government areas)
