LGNSW 2024-25 Advocacy Priorities

Local Government NSW’s 2024-2025 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 need and deserve.

They provide a way forward for NSW, with measures to bolster the financial sustainability of our sector, focus joint efforts to address the housing and homelessness crisis, and ensure councils are supported to provide the infrastructure and services that make communities liveable and vibrant.

The priorities also seek a commitment form state and federal governments to invest in the resilience of our communities and our infrastructure as councils grapple with natural disasters of escalating frequency and severity.

They highlight the local government sector’s calls for concerted attention on measures to protect the environment and invest in circular economy solutions, alongside initiatives to invest in the future local government workforce across NSW.

Local government stands ready to work in partnership with state and federal governments to achieve the best outcomes for all members of the community.
