Inaugural NGAA Symposium highlights Innovation

The inaugural NGAA Symposium, Research and Practice from Australia’s fast growing outer suburbs, was a jam-packed day, with 10 incredible presentations from across Australia's growth areas.

Collectively, the sessions provoked much interest and discussion about the innovative work that local government is undertaking in growth areas.

The Symposium, held on Thursday, 4 July at Wyndham City Council in Victoria, was attended by growth area councils from around the nation, together with representation from Department of Infrastructure, Cities and  Regional Development, Property Council, AHURI, Stocklands, Deloittes  to name a few. Collectively, we had 55 participants at Wyndham Council and another 10 locations joined via webinar. Thank you to Wyndham City Council for hosting the Symposium.

We will now take stock of the outcomes of the Symposium, and will work with the NGAA's Research and Practice Reference Group to develop a roadmap for future research and collaboration.

A comprehensive overview of the Symposium, as well as papers and presentations, will be distributed in the near future.
