The State Government has announced its response to NSW Local Reform as the Fit for the Future initiative.

A Fit for the Future Council is defined as one that firstly has the scale and capacity to engage effectively across the community, industry and government;

They should be:

  • Sustainable;
  • Effectively managing infrastructure and service delivery; and
  • Efficient.

You can visit the Fit for the Future website for further detail on this initiative.

For Narrabri Shire Council the Government is suggesting we remain a stand-alone Council by proving we are “Fit For the Future” and form a Joint Organisation to work in partnership with other Namoi Councils. Proof of our financial sustainability is to be provided by submission of a 10 year financial and business improvement strategy.
