NSW is picking four regional precincts to drive state’s recovery post-COVID, drought and bushfires

Four new Regional Job Precincts are coming to regional NSW to increase business and stimulate local economies post drought, bushfires and COVID, with the NEXUS Industrial Precinct in Albury named as the first.

Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW John Barilaro along with the Member for Albury Justin Clancy visited the NEXUS Industrial Precinct today to officially announce the first of four Regional Job Precincts to help drive recovery in NSW.

“We need to drive investment to our regions, create new jobs and help our State to thrive again, and this is one way the NSW Government is doing exactly that,” Mr Barilaro said.

“The formation of a Regional Job Precinct in Albury will see the NSW Government work with councils to reform existing planning processes and speed up development while maintaining existing environmental considerations so businesses can invest, create new jobs and boost the local economy.

“The Regional Job Precincts are part of the NSW Government’s Special Activation Precinct program, initially with four established across the state based on site suitability and potential to deliver strong economic benefits.”

Member for Albury Justin Clancy said the brand new Regional Job Precinct would be a game-changer for job creation and industry investment in Albury and surrounds.

“Albury’s enviable location along the major transport corridor between Sydney and Melbourne means there are incredible opportunities in freight and logistics, agribusiness and manufacturing industries in the NEXUS Precinct,” Mr Clancy said.

Albury City Mayor, Kevin Mack said the new initiative is a great win for the community and would boost business growth and job opportunities right across the Albury region.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for the council to partner with the NSW Government to drive meaningful planning reforms that will encourage investment and benefit potential and existing investors in the region, building on the work already done as part of the Albury-Wodonga regional deal,” Mr Mack said.

Further locations for Regional Job Precincts will be announced in coming months. Regional Job Precincts are part of the Special Activation Precincts program and the $4.2 billion Snowy Hydro Legacy Fund, which is dedicated to transformative infrastructure projects across regional NSW.
