The Richmond Valley Regional Job Precinct will investigate the Casino area to unlock new industrial lands and create more jobs for the region.
Plans for Richmond Valley
Located at the intersection of the Bruxner Highway and Summerland Way, Casino and the broader Richmond Valley are home to established industries ripe for investment.
The NSW Government is working closely with Richmond Valley Council, local businesses and communities to identify gaps and opportunities to improve local planning processes to develop a plan of action to unlock investment and growth opportunities, delivering stability and creating jobs for communities across Richmond Valley.
The Richmond Valley Regional Job Precinct will catalyse opportunities to create new jobs in agriculture, manufacturing and renewable energy sectors. The precinct will assist with business diversification by identifying value-adding opportunities for existing industries and local producers.
The NSW Government is conducting a range of technical studies including infrastructure and environmental studies, and an assessment of Aboriginal cultural heritage values, to ensure future development is well planned and respectful to the environment. These studies will inform the draft master plan for the precinct.
Community members will have the opportunity to provide feedback throughout the process. Updates on upcoming community engagement opportunities will be communicated across Richmond Valley Council and NSW Government communication channels.
