Inner West Council

Local Representation Advisory Committee (LRAC)

Former Mayors and Councillors have stepped back into action, with representatives from across the inner west agreeing to help shape decisions of the new Inner West Council.

Three Local Representation Advisory Committees (LRAC) have been established to help shape decisions of the new Inner West Council with former Mayors and Councillors agreeing to represent the inner west. The Three Local Representation Advisory Committees are Ashfield, Leichhardt and Marrickville which align with the three former Council boundaries.

The role of the Local Representation Advisory Committee(s) is to provide advice to the Administrator on local views and issues including:

  • Providing input to Council’s Operational Plan;
  • Advising on the communication and engagement plan for the community;
  • Providing input to the new Council’s Statement of Vision and Priorities;
  • Assisting to engage communities and partners in planning for the new Council;
  • Advising on key agenda items to be considered at Council meetings relevant to the Committee’s area of operations;
  • Representing community views on key projects and issues relevant to the Committee’s area of operations;
  • Working with communities to facilitate grant applications under the Stronger Communities Fund.
