These 129 LGAs play a crucial role in the governance and administration of the regions they encompass. They are the third tier of government in Australia, after the federal and state governments, and are responsible for providing local services and facilities to the community.

Key Functions of NSW LGAs:

  • Infrastructure Management: LGAs are responsible for the maintenance of local roads, bridges, water supply systems, and public buildings.
  • Community Services: They provide libraries, community centers, parks, and sports facilities, ensuring the well-being of residents.
  • Environmental Conservation: Waste management, recycling programs, and the protection of local ecosystems fall under their purview.
  • Planning and Development: LGAs handle local planning applications, ensuring sustainable development that meets the community’s needs.
  • Local Legislation: Councils can create local policies and by-laws, covering aspects like parking regulations and pet ownership.

The LGAs in NSW vary in size and population, ranging from densely populated urban areas to vast, sparsely populated rural regions. Each council is led by elected representatives, including a mayor or shire president, who work together to address the specific needs of their communities. The collaboration between the LGAs and the state government is essential for the provision of consistent and efficient services across NSW.

In a word, you can change the texts, colors, sizes, and add your charts. Most important of all, our maps can help to reduce your efforts and create good-looking maps. So you can focus on your core competence and outsource the maps to our professionals. At the same time you can also refer to the detailed LGAs of New South Wales (NSW) state in Wikipedia.
