Illawarra Shoalhaven Regional Plan 2036

The Illawarra Shoalhaven Regional Plan (ISRP) was released in 2015 and provides the strategic framework for future growth in the Region over the next 20 years. Since then, the NSW Government has delivered further documents, including the State Infrastructure Strategy 2018-2038, Future Transport 2056, A 20-year Economic Vision for Regional NSW and NSW South Coast Marine Tourism Strategy 2019. 

The Regional Plan was revised in 2021 and identifies 15 regionally significant precincts that will drive jobs creation, housing diversity, and vibrant communities. These places contain more than 2,300 hectares for employment, hubs for recreation, culture, housing, and innovation, as well as almost 45,000 jobs, and growth areas.

The regional cities of Shellharbour and Nowra align with the vision for the Illawarra Shoalhaven to serve as a central hub for business, government, and culture. They are envisioned as gathering places for civic events, community engagement, and social gatherings, while also serving as attractive destinations for visitors. Both regional cities are strategically situated adjacent to the regionally significant growth areas of West Lake Illawarra and Nowra Bomaderry. 

Collectively, these areas comprise the largest urban expansion areas in regional New South Wales, with a combined capacity for 37,600 housing lots. The residents settling in these regions will rely on the regional cities for employment opportunities, access to healthcare and educational services, and recreational activities.

The Regional Plan outlined that a major regional land release areas of in the West Lake Illawarra area includes West Dapto, with the most northern area containing the suburb of Kembla Grange.

Wollongong DCP 2009

Wollongong Development Control Plan 2009 (DCP) provides the guidance for the future development of the West Dapto Urban Release Area and includes the following Vision:

“West Dapto will grow and develop as a series of integrated and connected communities. Set against the spectacular Illawarra Escarpment and a landscape of riparian valleys, these communities will integrate the natural and cultural heritage of the area with the new urban form. The communities will be healthy, sustainable, and resilient with active and passive open space accessible by walkways, cycleways, and public transport. 

To support these new communities, local centres will provide shopping services, community services and jobs while employment lands will facilitate further opportunities for the region. West Dapto will be supported by a long-term strategy to oversee the timely implementation of infrastructure to deliver sustainable and high-quality suburbs with diverse housing choices”.

Five out of the seven Employment Principles outlined in the West Dapto Vision 2018 are designed to provide guidance for the development and establishment of sustainable employment opportunities in the West Dapto Urban Release Area.

This land is predominantly designated for light and heavy industrial purposes. Furthermore, there are limited areas designated for light industrial use organized in an enterprise corridor to the north and south of the Dapto Regional Centre, as well as some parcels situated to the west of the M1 and along Yallah Road in Yallah, all aimed at providing additional employment opportunities within the local community.
