The people of the Tamworth Electorate are set to benefit from a refreshed vision for the region after the release of the New England North West Regional Plan 2041.
Nationals Member for Tamworth, Kevin Anderson, said the plan had been updated following extensive community consultation with residents playing a key role in shaping the region’s future.
“We already know that our region is a great place to live, and this updated plan will build on our vision for a better region by enabling more housing choice, a stronger agribusiness sector, and a more resilient and vibrant community,” Mr Anderson said.
“This new plan takes full advantage of what makes our region work so well, setting us up for success by boosting our strongest attributes and guiding planning and land-use decisions over the next 20 years.
“The NSW Nationals in Government are building a stronger region by building the infrastructure we need and implementing a plan for a brighter future.”
The blueprint includes 22 objectives to maximise the region’s potential and natural beauty, and support the creation of more homes, jobs, and public spaces.
The vision identifies opportunities to benefit the agricultural industry, such as making it easier for farmers to grow and diversify their business through agritourism, promoting the Namoi Regional Job Precinct, and expanding freight networks to better access national and international markets.
