LGNSW 2023-24 Advocacy Priorities

Local Government NSW’s 2023-24 Advocacy Priorities highlight the critical issues facing the local government sector and detail what must be done if councils are to continue providing the infrastructure and services our communities deserve.

The priorities are informed by the local experience of councils across the State. They are designed to ensure we can all navigate the economic headwinds already placing immense financial pressure on households, businesses and society in general.

They place an emphasis on the need to strengthen the resilience of our infrastructure, services and systems to ensure our communities can accommodate growth while withstanding the extreme weather events that have become all too common in recent years.

There is also an acknowledgement of the impact climate change is having on the environment and liveability, as well as the need to increase productivity and workforce participation in all areas of the state.

Crucially, the priorities call for greater cooperation between state and local government, which will ultimately benefit the entire NSW community.
