Advocacy

Energy Supply

An important function of any Council is to advocate on behalf of the community to state and federal governments on the big issues that affect them.  During 2018 Councillors met with government Ministers to secure funding for:

A stable and cost-effective energy supply
Great Western Futures Plan
Halls Gap Masterplan
Marnoo Hub
Stawell Residential Land Strategy
Sports & Recreation infrastructure and development (Lord Nelson Park, Stawell Skate Park, Stawell Sports & Aquatic Centre and St Arnaud pool)
St Arnaud Town Hall
Stawell Gift
Western Highway duplication
Restoring passenger rail to our region (Western Rail) 

 

The Northern Grampians Shire Council takes pride in its ability to have the voice of the community heard at state and national level.
