New LRAC Structure to Increase Representation

The Inner West Council is consulting with the Local Representation Advisory Committees on changes to their structure that will allow them to play a larger part in bigger issues for the new Council.

The proposed structure is being used successfully by most other newly merged Councils in NSW.

This proposed change is about giving them a role in issues like the Council’s Affordable Housing policy, the Greater Sydney’s Commission Central District Plan for the area and Council’s operational Plan and Budget for 2017/18.

They are part of a much bigger Council now and a more strategic focus is essential.

The new format for the LRAC meetings would also mean that they are briefed on each item on the upcoming Meeting Agenda and can discuss them and help to shape the recommendations before they are reported to Council.

They are still welcome and able to voice the views of local residents both at LRAC and at Council meetings.

It also means that Council officers who were assigned to creating business papers and attending LRAC meetings in a manner similar to Council meetings, can concentrate on their core duties of delivering council services.
