Strategic Advisory Committees

  • Provide a broader base of information to Council on matters of concern which may impact on the Newcastle Local Government Area

  • Streamline the reporting process for sub-committees of Council, ensuring that Councillors are provided with meaningful, yet manageable information from all subcommittees.
