Strong foundations for sustainable local infrastructure

The Ernst & Young report Strong foundations for sustainable local infrastructure sets out a number of recommendations for funding future local infrastructure needs.

The report makes recommendations on:

  • how councils can leverage existing funding sources for investment in new infrastructure
  • improving councils' access to finance, and
  • helping councils identify and develop infrastructure.

The Australian Government commissioned the review in order to look at ways to better address the infrastructure funding gap with specific focus on local government.
