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.
