NSW Election Priorities 2015

In December 2014 LGNSW launched its priorities for the 2015 state election.
LGNSW’s State Election Priorities 2015 (PDF, 293KB) outlined to all political parties and candidates contesting the 2015 NSW election the issues of significance for councils and the communities they represent. It also included LGNSW’s proposed solutions.

  1. Greater autonomy in governance
  2. Autonomy in council revenue raising
  3. Fair funding for shared infrastructure and service responsibilities
  4. Agreed pathways on voluntary structural reform
  5. Mutual positioning on social policy priorities
  6. Improved environmental legislation and settings
