The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment brings together specialists in urban and regional planning, natural resources, industry, environment, heritage, Aboriginal and social housing, and regional New South Wales.

Serving the people of New South Wales by developing well-connected communities, preserving our environment, supporting our industries and contributing to a strong economy.

The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment cluster is responsible for delivering:
• a strong and liveable New South Wales
• maximum community benefit from government land and property
• resilient and sustainable environment and energy
• sustainable and productive regional industries and communities
• sustainable and secure water resources.

The department’s operations have been structured to help us achieve these outcomes for the people of New South Wales. We have teams across the State working on the long-term planning, planning assessments, infrastructure priorities, natural resources, the environment, energy and growing the State’s industries.

Regions, Industry, Agriculture and Resources leads policy development and program delivery to support local communities, build strong primary industries, activate regional economies and business development opportunities, manage our natural resources, and grow investment in NSW. The Group has a key focus on delivering the NSW Government’s commitment to regional NSW.
Amongst these is the Division of Resources and Geoscience which manages access to the mineral and petroleum resources, making sure they’re sustainably developed to maximise export opportunities.

Some of the more recent work has been the release of the new Statewide Seamless Geology map, one of the most complex geodata sets ever compiled and released worldwide.
