Rural Residential, Industrial and Residential Strategy

Note: The RRIR Strategy was prepared for the Mudgee Shire Council and therefore does not address the full Mid-Western Region.

This document has been superceded by the Comprehensive Land Use Strategy but has been included on the site for reference purposes.

Introduction

Mudgee Shire covers an area of approximately 5550 square kilometers and is located in the Central West region of New South Wales. The two main towns of Mudgee and Gulgong are located some 25 kilometers apart in the central area of the Shire. Council's Local Environmental Plan 1998 consolidated a series of separate plans developed over the previous twenty (20) years. However, a comprehensive strategic planning review of the urban and rural areas of the Shire has not been undertaken since 1980.
