Health Precinct Master Plan
The master plan for Albury’s health precinct aims to ensure that the city’s hospitals have the opportunities to develop the resources and facilities they need to maintain and improve the care of about 250,000 people from across the wider region.
The health precincts have grown significantly in recent years and demand for their services is expected to expand further as the population ages, creating growth in allied and supportive health services.
This growth will require ongoing work to provide infrastructure to overcome site constraints such as access to parking at the Albury hospital in East Street and the private hospital in West Albury, and the planning will identify locations and opportunities to meet those demands.
The master plan will also identify redevelopment opportunities in these precincts, co-ordinating neighbouring property owners and government departments.
This project has also been identified as a key action in the ‘Riverina Murray Regional Plan 2036’ and will involve input from the NSW Department of Planning & Environment and Health NSW as well as engagement with key stakeholders and health groups (e.g. Albury Wodonga Health) and the wider community.
