The NSW Government has committed a further $137 million to drive economic growth through in Wagga Wagga.
The investment kick-starts the delivery of the precinct, funding core infrastructure to get businesses to set up sooner in Wagga Wagga. The precinct capitalises on Wagga Wagga’s location as NSW’s southern gateway and central to Australia’s richest food and agricultural region, the Riverina. It offers land blocks that cost a fraction of those in major metropolitan areas and is home to the Riverina Intermodal Freight and Logistics Hub.
With the precinct master plan complete, the NSW Government will lead its delivery by providing design and construction a delivery plan to support streamlined approvals, and a business concierge service to help investors set up or expand in the regions.
Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW John Barilaro said, “We want to create an employment hub with exceptional design to help Wagga Wagga grow while maintaining its unique, local appeal."
“We’ve heard what the community has to say so far and what they love about this place and we’ve really taken that into consideration with this plan."
The delivery plan will provide development requirements for businesses within the precinct and go on public exhibition in mid-2021.
