Future Plans

Future Shoalhaven

In the Shoalhaven we value what we have and want to protect it. There are also incredible opportunities for growth in the region. The solution is key development in key localities.

The Shoalhaven is committed to developing precincts such as an education precinct, a health & wellbeing precinct, a civic precinct, waterways precincts, an aquaculture development hub, a naval aviation hub and vibrant areas for commercial and industrial development.

The Shoalhaven’s vision is to be a family oriented community committed to growing jobs and supporting our businesses.

The community of the Shoalhaven is committed to responsible future development. This section gives concepts for future developments. It attempts to state the existing development and potential ideas for future growth. This in no way is being prescriptive about the area but it aims to create discussion and imagination about how the Shoalhaven could look into the future.
