South West Moree Social Plan

Keeping the needs of people and community at the centre of renewal and revitalisation processes within South-West Moree.


  • Moree has a large representation of Aboriginal People, many of whom reside within the South–West Moree Precinct (SWMP).
  • The Precinct was originally developed in the 1950s and 1960s, as a result of a high demand for public housing and has been historically characterised by its poor socio– economic indicators, which continue to the present.
  • The Social Plan for SWMP provides a framework to achieving the vision, goals, strategies and actions desired by the community in revitalising the Precinct, including attention to physical infrastructure and space. It includes the steps needed to reach these goals and a framework for monitoring and evaluating progress.

key success factors

  • Whole of government support for the Social Plan as a leading document to facilitate support and collaboration from within NSW State agencies
  • Utilisation of ABS Aboriginal Wellness Framework and domains as the basis for planning, cross sector collaboration and future measurement of outcomes.
