We appreciate the progress made in addressing the challenges of the rapid growth of our cities under former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

More than 400,000 people moved to a fast growing outer suburb during Mr Turnbull’s three years as Prime Minister and there is much work to do to ensure those new communities have access to the infrastructure and services they need to thrive.

We look forward to continuing to work with the Government on initiatives such as City Deals and major infrastructure projects which provide real potential for building stronger communities and economies for the nearly five million people already living in Australia’s fast growing outer suburbs.
