The National Growth Areas Alliance is the peak body representing 21 Councils on the outskirts of capital cities, where one fifth of the Australian population lives. Another 2.5 million people are expected to be living in growth areas by 2031.
Alliance Members are united by shared experiences of population growth rates at double the national average, inadequate infrastructure to cope with the increased demand, and long-term lack of government investment in roads, public transport and essential services.
The National Growth Areas Alliance advocates for a dedicated focus on Australia’s fast growing outer suburbs. Our work is supported by a strong research base proving the need for, and benefits of, long-term planning and funding of critical infrastructure.
As Executive Officer, Bronwen brings advocacy, policy and government relations expertise to the Alliance. She has consulted extensively to local government, small business and not-for-profits, and has worked with the Federal Government on multilateral trade negotiations, including representing Australia at the WTO.
