Ministerial Media Release - NSW Councils Join Forces To Create Network Of Joint Organisations
Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW John Barilaro and Local Government Minister Gabrielle Upton today announced more than 70 councils across regional NSW have voluntarily joined forces to establish a new network of 11 Joint Organisations.
Mr Barilaro and Ms Upton said the formal proclamation of the Joint Organisations would strengthen collaboration between local councils and the NSW Government on important regional projects.
Mr Barilaro said the NSW Government will give each new Joint Organisation $300,000 in seed funding to help establish the new regional bodies, and in turn drive better planning, economic development and service delivery across regional and remote NSW.
“The formal proclamation of 11 Joint Organisations is a landmark day for regional NSW and will change the way local councils and the State Government work together to deliver important projects,” Mr Barilaro said.
