Sustainable Communities

Richmond Valley Council wants to create great places to live, preserving our Valley’s unique lifestyle. Our challenge over the next 20 years will be to strike a balance between supporting employment, housing and investment and protecting what we love about this place, including our green corridors, rivers and waterways, farmland and open spaces. By growing and enhancing our natural environment, connectivity and efficiency we can continue to attract people and economic growth to our Valley.
