In April 2013, the Regional Development Association (RDA) Far South Coast undertook a review of the equine industry in the Shoalhaven region. The outcome of the review, was an Equine Industry Scoping Report that identified a range of opportunities and recommendations to capture the potential of the industry in the region.

In July 2015 Council commissioned Locale Consulting to develop a Master Plan document for the Shoalhaven Equestrian Centre of Excellence in Schofield's Lane (Berry) to meet the Equine needs of the region and to relocate the existing Berry Riding Club. The Berry Riding Club was displaced as part of the current highway bypass works. The Master Plan provides a starting point for the development of the facility and is seeking funding for implementation.

At a local level the project has been accelerated through the need to relocate the Berry Riding Club to Lot 6 DP1188080 Schofield Lane Berry following construction of the Berry By-pass road.

Stage one of the master plan is currently funded and involves the relocation of the Berry Riding Club to the site. Detail design is finalised and tenders have been called for the construction of the 'like for like' Berry Riding Club requirements and funding for future stages is being investigated.

In addition to stage one works, Council has engaged a consultant to develop a funding and business plan for the Shoalhaven Equestrian Centre of Excellence. The purpose of the Funding and Business Plans is to facilitate ongoing development of the Centre of Excellence to enable the full master plan vision be achieved through external grant funding from State or Federal Government sources.

Council has engaged the preferred tenderer and the Development Application has been approved by Council. Works have commenced on site and are on schedule.
