Plans for the future on public exhibition

Council’s new plans for the future are now on exhibition for the community to have their say. The drafting of these plans has taken 18 months and has involved extensive engagement with the community. The plans include:

The main focus of the plans is to improve our roads network, boost the local economy and local jobs, and enhance the way Council communicates with the community. The Richmond Valley Made 2030 Community Strategic Plan heralds in a number of exciting new projects, including the completion of the Northern River Livestock Exchange, the redevelopment of Woodburn’s riverside park, and the revitalisation of the Casino Drill Hall site. The CSP puts a real focus on continuing to improve the way Council operates, making it as efficient and effective as it can be. The CSP also recognises what makes Richmond Valley great is its people and builds on that to bring in a brighter future. All six draft documents will be on exhibition until 4.30pm Friday 2 June. The plans can be downloaded by clicking the links above, or you can pick copies up from Council's Customer Service Centres in Casino and Evans Head, and from local libraries and visitor information centres.

Submissions can be made in person at Council offices, in writing address to the General Manager, Richmond Valley Council, Locked Bag 10, Casino or via email at council@richmondvalley.nsw.gov.au Following the public consultation process, the CSP and related documents will be fully considered by the Council at its Tuesday 27 June meeting.
