Goulburn Mulwaree Council may soon be one of the Regional Cities NSW that aim to bring change in the regional areas through policy development and active implementation of the policies.
General Manager Warwick Bennett confirmed to the Goulburn Post that Goulburn Mulwaree Council has been invited to apply to Regional Cities NSW.
"We have made their application by way of letter. The benefits of being involved in Regional Cities NSW will include discussion of options and opportunities for growth of regional cities in NSW who share similar attributes," he said.
"The group will also open up fabulous opportunities for direct liaison with ministers, and departmental heads, within the federal and NSW Government where we can discuss decentralisation and the benefits of regional cities."
Regional Cities NSW is an alliance of NSW regional cities that work together to bring beneficial outcomes to each of the local government areas on a range of issues including investment.
It believes that by improving infrastructure and liveability in regional cities, it can help to grow and support wider regional and rural communities.
It comprises mayors, chief executive officers and general managers of different cities who share their vision for growth and investment.
Regional Cities NSW had replaced the NSW Inland Forum and the inaugural meeting of the alliance was held in 2019.
It is based on a successful model implemented in Victoria where some of the largest cities outside of Melbourne came together to work on issues and projects of mutual interest that affect regional cities in that state.
