Hunter Renewal

Hunter Renewal is a project to bring people, businesses, and organisations of the Hunter Valley together to envision a diverse, resilient, and thriving future for our region.

We want to reimagine the Hunter with new opportunities and a diversified and resilient economy that’s ready for a changing future.

We want to develop a plan that will:

  • Nurture and grow new industries and new jobs.
  • Protect and advance our traditional sustainable industries.
  • Provide new opportunity and skills for young people in the region.
  • Make sure workers in the coal industry are given the opportunities they need to reskill and transition to quality new jobs when coal mines and power stations wind down.
  • Rehabilitate our landscapes to provide clean water and productive country for generations to come.

We’ve hosted public dinners in Singleton and Muswellbrook to begin building a community vision for Hunter Renewal, and we’ll be holding further events in the future, including a public summit in February 2019.
