The Albury Regional Job Precinct will build on the NSW Government’s existing investment in the NEXUS Industrial Precinct to create a hub of manufacturing, agribusiness and freight services and deliver more jobs for the region.
An action plan is being developed to outline recommended changes to the local planning framework to provide the local council, communities, industry and businesses with greater confidence around future investment and development. Technical environmental and planning studies will investigate around 1,200 hectares of land within the Albury Local Government Area, including the NEXUS Industrial Precinct.
Regional Job Precincts will deliver faster planning approvals to provide local councils, industry and businesses with greater confidence around future investment and development.
All Regional Job Precincts are being delivered as part of the $4.2 billion Snowy Hydro Legacy Fund.
The Albury Regional Job Precinct will offer:
- A manufacturing and logistics hub in the Riverina Murray region located 12km from Albury Airport, which offers up to 180 flights per week to Melbourne and Sydney.
- A strategic location along the Inland Rail corridor and Hume Highway, creating opportunities to attract new and existing businesses in the manufacturing, agribusiness and freight industries.
- A focus on circular economy industries that will leverage Albury’s locational advantage.
- Albury has an existing skilled workforce to support the manufacturing, transport and logistics sectors.
- Anchor tenants like Circular Plastics Australia and Ettamogah Rail Hub.
Work is underway with Albury City Council to commence technical investigations in the coming months.
Community members and landowners will have an opportunity to contribute and provide feedback on this exciting project throughout 2021.
