I am pleased to enclose a copy of the Draft Central West and Orana Regional Plan recently
released by the NSW Minister for Planning, the Hon. Rob Stokes MP. The draft Plan outlines a vision to grow and diversify the economy for the next 20 years by supporting jobs growth and strengthening the regrons cities, towns, and villages.

The draft Plan identifies goals for the region including: . A growing and diverse regional economy. . A region with strong freight transport and utility infrastructure networks that support economic growth. . A region that protects and enhances its productive agricultural land, natural resources and environmental assets. . Strong communities and liveable places that cater for the region's changing population.

The draft Plan includes feedback gathered from Councils, NSW State Agencies, peak bodies and the community through previous consultation and discussions.

We very much welcome your input and feedback on the draft Plan, and look lorward to working with you to ensure the final plan meets the needs of the Central West and Orana community.
