Local Government Programs and Initiatives

To have a strong future NSW needs strong councils that provide the high quality services and infrastructure communities deserve. The NSW Government is committed to building on the strengths of local government and improving the performance and financial sustainability of councils so they can serve their communities better. The local government sector is a critical part of the NSW economy, employing nearly 50,000 people and spending more than $11 billion annually in providing infrastructure and services to people across the State.
