The Nammoona Industrial Precinct is anticipated to generate employment, business activity and revenue for the local community with the Richmond Valley well placed to strengthen its position as the industry and transport hub of the Northern Rivers.
The precinct has been identified as its key industrial expansion zone by Council in the Richmond Valley.
Not only do we see multi-million dollar upgrades and expansions across the Northern Rivers Livestock Exchange, the Nammoona Waste Facility and the Northern Cooperative Meat Company, the precinct is also home to DTM Timber and Riverina Stock Feeds and Council is actively pursuing new technology investments in the waste-to-energy sector for this precinct.
Approximately 60 hectares of vacant industrial land has been zoned suitable for an intermodal facility and distribution centre which Council is keen to see activated. The economic growth of the region is a key objective for the Richmond Valley community and investments of this nature therefore have a high level of priority within Council’s Community Strategic Plan.
Opportunities for an intermodal and rail terminal have been clearly identified and investors actively sought. Both projects are continuing to progress. If both projects were to be realised significant employment opportunities and economic benefits to our Council and the region would ensue. This would encourage other industries to consider setting up in or around the precinct, and provide a growth environment where ancillary businesses can benefit from the enhanced economic activity.
As a community leader, Council must look to secure its area’s future by providing opportunities for industry growth and employment for generations to come and this precinct is a source of significant optimism in regard to the opportunities it could deliver.
