Taking a fresh approach to how we invest in regional NSW

Regional communities have grown and changed a lot over the past decade, and we need to update how the government invests in regional NSW.

We want to be sure we are supporting regional development in a fair and equitable way, and guarantee we are doing everything we can to be transparent and accountable to the people of NSW in how we spend public funds.

The NSW Government is undertaking a review of the Regional Development Act 2004 to identify priorities for regional communities, establish how the government will work with these communities to improve outcomes and the approach to identify areas for future investment.

Tell us what you think

We want to hear from all members of the NSW community. Your feedback will help inform how the Government supports the sustainable growth of regional NSW now and into the future.

Have your say consultations are run by the NSW Department of Customer Service (McKell Building, 2-4 Rawson Place, Haymarket NSW 2000).

We are interested in hearing from the community and will use the information we collect from you to help develop the programs and services that NSW Government provides.

We are collecting only minimal personal information from you. We may collect basic information like your name and contact details, if you choose to provide them. You may provide some personal information in response to questions that we ask you. For example, we may ask you about your experiences or opinions about a particular topic.

Having your say is voluntary and you are not legally required to provide any personal information to us. For some consultations, though, you will not be able to have your say unless you agree to include your personal information.

If you do provide personal information to us, you have a right to access it, and can ask us to correct it if it is wrong.

We may share personal information you provide with other parts of the Department of Customer Service (for example, with our Data Analytics Centre) so that we can conduct analysis across all consultations and refine our engagement methodology.

Where we conduct a consultation with or on behalf of a partner agency, we would usually share the information that we collect with that agency. In this instance, we are running this consultation with:

  • Department of Regional NSW
