NGAA congratulates Albanese Government on election victory

23 May, 2022

The National Growth Areas Alliance congratulates Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and federal Labor on their election victory. We look forward to working together for better policy outcomes and more equitable infrastructure investment for the 5.2 million Australians living in the fast growing outer suburbs.

Labor’s commitments to reinvigorate cities policy to secure more liveable and sustainable communities are particularly welcome for the outer suburbs, including:

  • Renewing the independent role of Infrastructure Australia and a new Australian Cities and Suburbs unit.
  • Producing an annual state of the cities report to inform policy-making with evidence.
  • Delivering a new National Urban Policy framework
  • And giving local government a voice in a meaningful National Cabinet process.

Congratulations to all the newly elected and the re-elected Members of Parliament representing growth area communities across the nation.
