 1. Enable financial sustainability

 2. Fund local infrastructure

 3. Support local government in community and economic recovery

 4. Invest in better waste, recycling and circular economy solutions

 5. Protect community input into planning decisions and return planning powers to councils

 6. Reform emergency funding and management

 7. Support strong and inclusive communities

 8. Deliver secure, sustainable, town water supplies

 9. Improve rural and regional health services

 10. Address skills shortages

 11. Introduce fair pay and superannuation for mayors and councillors
