The updated plan for the future of the Illawarra Shoalhaven

Welcome to the place where you can learn about the updated strategic plan for the future of the Illawarra Shoalhaven region.

The Illawarra Shoalhaven Regional Plan is the NSW Government’s blueprint to ensure the ongoing prosperity and growth of the dynamic region that is made up of the Wollongong, Shellharbour, Kiama, and Shoalhaven local government areas. The Regional Plan provides vision and direction to guide planning and land use decisions over the next 20 years to drive job creation, housing diversity and vibrant, green, liveable communities.

The Illawarra Shoalhaven Regional Plan was the first of nine regional plans in the state when it was released in 2015.

Since then the NSW Government, working closely with stakeholders and the community, has gone a long way to achieving the Regional Plan’s priorities.
