Destination 2036 identified the need for action to ensure quality governance in councils to create stronger local government. One of the key actions, for which the Office of Local Government is responsible for coordinating, is to develop and implement a Councillor Development Strategy. The Strategy aims to ensure that all NSW councillors have timely access to the information they need to understand and fullfil their roles and responsibilities effectively.

The Strategy has been developed in partnership with Local Government NSW and comprises a number of components:

  • Pre-election workshops for potential candidates
  • Workshops for newly elected and returning councillors
  • Councillor Handbook
  • Councillor Induction and Professional Development Guide - A Guide for Council
