The Australian Government, Victorian and New South Wales Governments, and AlburyCity and City of Wodonga Councils, have today released an update on progress towards the Albury-Wodonga Regional Deal.

Since the signing of the Regional Deal’s Statement of Intent earlier this year, six community reference groups and an Aboriginal working group have been meeting virtually to explore the challenges and opportunities for Albury-Wodonga over the next decade.

Core themes that have emerged from the community consultation will now be analysed to shape decisions by all levels of government on the final Regional Deal.

The parties have also identified through the Regional Deal process an early opportunity to progress upgrades to key community spaces along the Murray River. Pending agreement on final details, an announcement on this exciting first step is expected soon.

The final Deal is expected to be finalised by Ministers and Mayors for release in mid-2021.
