What does NSROC do?

NSROC  was formed to assist our local councils to collaborate on key issues and activities to generate benefits-social, environmental and economic-for their individual councils and for the region as a whole.

NSROC is charged with 4 main functions:

  • REGIONAL ADVOCACY – to promote a  united voice on shared concerns in our region
  • REGIONAL PROJECT MANAGEMENT to co-ordinate councils on regional  or cross council projects
  • REGIONAL RESEARCH to assess and evaluate regional needs and trends
  • REGIONAL INFORMATION PROVISION  to provide councils and their communities with supporting resources

NSROC is a resource to its member councils enabling collaboration and development of regional solutions.

For examples of regional collaboration and projects see our 2009 Regional Projects Brochure which showcases joint infrastructure projects undertaken by our member councils.  This brochure  demonstrates the NSROC councils capacity to achieve mutually beneficial arrangements for its residents.

NSROC Strategic Plan 2008 – 2010

Every two years NSROC develops a strategic plan to guide decisions and policy and to provide a focus for action. Each strategic direction in the plan is led by a General Manager and contains a goal and a set of strategies and actions to achieve specific outcomes. The NSROC Strategic Plan for 2008-10 contains 8 strategic directions which cover; financial sustainability, built environment, governance, climate change, strengthening communities, transport, valuing our workforce, and infrastructure. The Plan was created with the input of council staff and adopted by formal resolution of the NSROC Board.
