The Symposium will provide a unique insight into local government's emerging and innovative planning and development approaches to the challenges faced by citizens and industries located in the fast growing outer suburbs of Australia's capital cities.

The Symposium's Call for Submissions opened on 26 March and will close on 29 April, 2019. All submissions will be reviewed by NGAA's Research and Practice Reference Group and the final program will be announced in early June.

Submissions will be accepted from NGAA Member Councils only, in conjunction with their research partners (where applicable).

Attendance at the Symposium will be open to all and we would encourage local, state and federal government officers, academics, research organisations and industry and stakeholder groups to register when registrations open in mid-May.
