cbdSwan Hill's population is growing and Swan Hill Rural City council is planning for the centre's future needs.

The region is facing a prosperous future with continuing irrigated horticultural expansion.  
There has also been significant investment in the areas of manufacturing, retail, agricultural service, health and education services, entertainment and hospitality over recent years, and this is forecast to continue

The redevelopment project will create a focus for the town's centre and offer attractive public spaces in the heart of the Swan Hill business district where locals and visitors meet or rest in convenient and interesting locations.

The project will be a showcase for sustainable living and good ecological design. The design will demonstrate strong links to the Murray River, and in particular the Swan Hill River Precinct.

The benefits of the project for the community include:
- improvement in the economic performance of the business district as a result of increased local and tourist trade;
- increased employment opportunities and tourist development;
- support for local businesses by sourcing where possible and in accordance with Council's Purchasing Policy, goods and services required during the project's implementation phase.

Important social outcomes from the project are expected to include:
- provision of interesting, comfortable and safe meeting places;
- an increase in community well being brought about by pride and a sense of belonging and ownership;
- recognition of the cultural heritage of the area and the elements that make Swan Hill different;
- an opportunity to showcase the talents and skills of local residents.
