LGNSW’s Priorities for 2022

LGNSW is the voice of local government in NSW, representing councils and related entities as peak body for the sector.

We support, promote and advocate for our members, empowering them to build strong, liveable communities.

Informed by our members, LGNSW has identified eight priority areas requiring urgent action from the NSW and Australian governments to strengthen local government and improve the quality of life of communities across NSW.
