Pledge to keep local water utilities in local hands welcomed by Councils - Local Government NSW Media Release

The local government sector has welcomed a “rock-solid guarantee” that local water utilities will not be privatised if a Liberal-National Government is re-elected in NSW.

NSW Minister for Regional Water Niall Blair made the pledge at the Western Division Conference in Bourke today in response to a question on behalf of councils from Local Government NSW (LGNSW) President Cr Linda Scott.

The Minister’s promise matches the 2018 commitment by Labor’s Shadow Minister Chris Minns at LGNSW’s Water Conference in Armidale last year.
