National Growth Areas Alliance
Australian cities are experiencing a sustained period of rapid urban growth, particularly on the urban fringes.
This growth is predicted to remain strong for the next 25 years or more. The National Growth Areas Alliance (NGAA) represents the interests of these fast growing areas across Australia.
NGAA formed in response to a recognition by the local councils in these areas that the cost of building the infrastructure communities need is high and is projected to increase; but that the cost of under servicing is even higher - for families, communities and the nation.
In 2016 NGAA’s work will focus on the Fund our Future campaign.
Fund our Future calls for a rethink of infrastructure policy and a dedicated national funding mechanism to fix the infrastructure problems of fast-growing outer suburbs for the long-term. Billions of dollars are needed nationally to address the backlog and future-proof these areas, as they continue to grow.
