Northern Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils (NSROC)
www.nsroc.org

 

Northern Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils (NSROC) is comprised of seven councils in the northern part of Sydney, which have voluntarily come together to address regional issues, work co-operatively for the benefit of the region, and advocate on agreed regional positions and priorities. The seven member councils are Hornsby, Hunters Hill, Ku-ring-gai, Lane Cove, North Sydney, Ryde and Willoughby.

 

Northern Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils (NSROC) is a voluntary organisation of local government established to provide strong local government leadership; to work co-operatively for the benefit of the Northern Sydney region; and to effectively advocate on agreed regional positions and priorities.

 

The NSROC councils are committed to the sustainable management of an area, which covers nearly 700 square kilometres, and they serve a population of over half-a-million people. The region is home to a diverse collection of landscapes and communities, ranging from scenic waterways, bush land parks and areas of historical significance through to residential high-rise living and thriving commercial and retail centres.

 

The objectives of NSROC as defined in the NSROC constitution are:

1. To strengthen the role of Local Government in regional affairs, particularly where the region may be affected by Commonwealth or New South Wales Government policies

2. To ensure that as a region we are providing leadership and participating in the development of; sound urban infrastructure; economic infrastructure and employment opportunities

3. To facilitate the integration of transport, human and environmental infrastructure projects that support opportunities that meet community and business needs

4. To improve the quality and access to human services infrastructure

5. To improve the quality and efficiency of Local Government service delivery throughout the Northern Sydney Region

6. To ensure the Organisation develops as a highly credible and cost-effective organisation

 

NSROC is comprised of the NSROC Board (a mayor and one other nominated councillor from each NSROC council), and an Executive (a president and two vice-presidents). The Board and Executive are supported by the General Managers Advisory Group (GMAC) and the NSROC Executive Director and Executive Assistant.

 

NSROC Regional Profile

The NSROC Regional Profile was created in 2002 to provide a snapshot of the Northern Sydney Region. The profile presents a wide range of material that illustrates the rich and varied diversity that makes the Northern Sydney Region a unique area in which to live, work and play. The profile does not pretend to provide all the data for the region – just a cross section of an area that covers more than 680 square kilometres and is home for more than half a million people.

NSROC Regional Social Report

The NSROC Regional Social Report was completed by GML Social Research in July 2005 and identifies social issues of high concern to the communities of the NSROC region. The report examines the community values of the region and the anticipated impacts on the provision of community services if current population growth trends continue as anticipated and as documented in the state government's recently released Metropolitan Strategy.

NSROC Regional State of Environment Report 2005/06

 

The environment of the NSROC region is under intense pressure from existing human settlement and the ongoing process of urban consolidation and population growth. In recognition of the fact that many environmental issues need a regional approach, the seven councils that make up NSROC have been produced their second regional State of Environment Report.

 

This report details the environmental challenges facing the communities of Northern Sydney as well as the management responses from local government. Time series data across a range of environmental indicators is being collected and reported enabling a more sophisticated, informed and collaborative approach from the NSROC councils.
