Albury chosen as site for first new regional job precinct
Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW John Barilaro visited the NEXUS Industrial Precinct to officially announce the first of four Regional Job Precincts to help drive recovery in NSW.
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.
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.”
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.
