This week, the Minister for Planning and Housing, Anthony Roberts, and I joined local business owners and community members to announce ‘Jindabyne 2036’, a new plan to revitalise Jindabyne with a $2.4 million masterplan to 2036.

Jindabyne is bursting with potential, and now is the time to act and form a clear vision for the future.

Jindabyne is the gateway to the beautiful Snowy Mountains, it is a thriving town with enormous potential for growth, and proper planning will see Jindabyne become known as the nation’s premier alpine destination.

This masterplan will ensure Jindabyne is not only able to cope with future growth, but is also in a position to thrive for decades to come.

Jindabyne is home to a landscape that tourists and visitors dream of, but it is also a fantastic place to live, work and raise a family.

The masterplan will take into account the needs of permanent residents, as well as the region’s tourism needs for the future.

We need to focus on delivering well planned, efficient and sustainable development that complements the region, supporting the unique character of the beautiful Snowy Mountains.

I am looking forward to delivering a detailed plan for the growth of Jindabyne.

The plan will include analysis on the location of future services including schools, health services and community centres; set out a plan to unlock the Lake Jindabyne foreshore; and look at the links and opportunities in surrounding towns and villages including Adaminaby, Berridale and Dalgety.
