Local Government Awards nominations are now open

We are excited to welcome you back in person to our Local Government Week Awards 2021.

The Local Government Week Awards were established in 1981 to recognise and encourage greater understanding and communication by councils to their local communities.

Applications for council nominations can be submitted for the three following awards:

  • RH Dougherty Awards
  • Leo Kelly OAM Arts and Culture Award
  • LGNSW Planning Award sponsored by the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE)

These awards recognise excellence in communications, planning, and culture. We encourage you to submit a nomination for at least one.
