The draft plan is the 20-year strategic blueprint to guide and support communities in the Far West Region as they adapt to meet future challenges.

The plan will ensure the ongoing liveability and sustainability of local communities. It will help the region become more prosperous and plan for housing, jobs, infrastructure, a healthy environment and connected communities.

The first Far West Regional Plan – which looked forward to 2036– was released in 2017. The Department of Planning and Environment reviews and updates regional plans every 5 years to make sure they are relevant for the next 20 years.

The Department of Planning have consulted with councils, agencies, and other stakeholders over the past 12 months to build on the first plan and extend it to 2041.
