Councils in support of joint model

COFFS Harbour City Council has lent its support to the State Government's joint organisations (JOs) model.

Coffs Harbour - together with Clarence Valley, Bellingen Shire and Nambucca Shire councils - has been earmarked since 2013 to become a member of the regional North Coast Joint Organisation.

It's a result of the State Government's review of local government.

"The proposed North Coast joint organisation will essentially continue and build on the valuable collaborative relationships that we've developed as a group of councils over past years (and) will also give us a stronger regional voice on community priorities," Coffs Harbour Mayor Denise Knight said.

In the model, JOs are intended to have three core functions - regional strategic planning, intergovernmental collaboration and regional leadership and advocacy.

At Thursday's Coffs Harbour City Council meeting it was agreed a submission supporting the proposed model would be sent to the State Government.
