The Clarence Correctional Centre, located in Lavadia (approximately 12.5 kilometres south-east of Grafton, NSW) will accommodate 1,700 inmates. Featuring state of the art security and surveillance, the centre will focus on rehabilitation to reduce the rate of reoffending.

The benefits of the project include:

  • Approximately $560 million injected into the local economy over the next 20 years.
  • Long-term, local economic opportunities through procurement of a range of goods and services.
  • Up to 1,100 construction jobs and 600 operational jobs created.
  • The centre addresses the critical shortage of correctional centre beds and facilities within NSW.
