Edward River Council is committed to facilitating the long term, sustainable growth of our population and economy.

We have a proven track record of working with other tiers of government to deliver projects that address regional challenges and capitalise on opportunities that support our growth agenda.

Council's 2024-25 Advocacy Plan outlines how Council will work with our government and industry partners on priority, strategic initiatives to deliver economic and social benefit for the Edward River and broader region.

It is a blueprint for partnership, and Edward River Council is working with our region’s partners and decision makers to deliver these exciting projects.
