The report ” Strong Foundations for Sustainalbe Local Infrastructure” by Ernst  &  Young  was  released in July 2012 by  the  Department  of  Regional  Australia,  Local  Government,  Arts  and  Sport.  The report  reviews the prioritisation and financing of local infrastructure.

The recommendations fall into three broad themes:

  • Recommendations to enable councils to leverage existing funding sources for investment in new infrastructure
  • Recommendations to improve councils‘ access to cost effective finance
  • Enabling recommendations to improve councils‘ ability to identify and develop infrastructure and gain access to specialist skills necessary to deliver innovative financing solutions.
