Fit for the Future

The NSW Government asked the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) to perform the role of the Expert Advisory Panel to assess how council proposals met the Fit for the Future criteria. All the state’s councils requested to submit proposals with IPART for assessment under the NSW Government’s Fit for the Future reforms did so. Our role was to consider proposals independently and to ensure a consistent, fair and impartial assessment.

All council proposals and individual assessments can be viewed below.  We received additional information from some councils, which included corrections or revisions to figures, clarification of statements included in their proposals, or information on other relevant factors requested by IPART. This information has been used by the Tribunal in making its assessments but has generally not been uploaded to the website as it was received after 30 June 2015
