The NSW Government has fast tracked a proposal put together by Shoalhaven Starches to transform an existing warehouse into a hand sanitiser factory.

It's all part of the Government's Planning and Acceleration Program.

The project is expected to inject around $7.8 million dollars into the local economy and create an extra 24 jobs in the region.

Planning Minister Rob Stokes says COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on our lives and the economy and getting shovel-ready projects out the door to help NSW rebound is a critical priority.
