Regionally Significant Projects and Infrastructure

Dubbo Regional Council is leading the way for Regional NSW in developing infrastructure and encouraging investment into the area to accommodate growing industry requirements and an increasing population. Dubbo Regional Council is at the forefront of economic strategy and proactive town planning as the Dubbo Region is on track for significant growth over the next decade and Dubbo Regional Council understands the need to provide reliable infrastructure and facilities to serve our expanding business network and growing regional economy.

We are committed to the attraction of significant private and public sector investment to provide a platform for continued, sustainable and successful growth for our Region. We are pleased to provide our stakeholders and partners with information on current Regionally Significant Projects & Infrastructure. Please find on the map below details of projects that are either in planning stages or have been recently completed. (Click on the icons to see further information and attachments on each project).


Another service we provide our community is online tracking for current Development Applications (DA’s), which can be found here.


If you are a person who is involved with a business that is considering relocating or opening a new site in the region or whether you are an existing business that is looking to expand, our Economic Development Services Team are extremely eager to hear from you. This service is a free service provided by Dubbo Regional Council to help connect you with the resources that will assist in making the transition as smooth, efficient and as successful as possible.
