Australian Government Urban Policy Consultation Network

Regional Capitals Australia (RCA) has been invited by the Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development the Hon Catherine King MP to join the Australian Government’s Urban Policy Consultation Network, which will provide advice and feedback to the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts on urban policy issues.

In particular, the Network will provide advice on the development of the new National Urban Policy, which will shape the direction of Australia’s cities for the decades ahead.  The policy will aim to develop a shared vision to ensure growth in cities is sustainable to meet the challenges of the future.  The first meeting was held on 20 September and RCA Chair, Cr Kylie King was in attendance to represent regional capitals.
