FORUM FUELS INNOVATION

Councils from across Queensland and New South Wales have gathered in Brisbane today for the inaugural Local Government Heavy Vehicle Forum.

Mayors, councillors and senior council staff are participating in the event, which provides an opportunity for local governments and industry representatives to showcase examples of how they are using provisions under the national law to reduce red tape and boost their local economies.

The event is being hosted by the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator in partnership with the Local Government Association of Queensland and Local Government NSW.

Toowoomba Regional Council, Moree Plains Shire Council, Blacktown City Council, the City of Greater Dandenong and a host of heavy vehicle industry representatives presented key case studies highlighting how their organisations have worked diligently and been innovative in finding solutions to address their unique freight challenges.

The forum is a key initiative under the LGAQ’s Memorandum of Agreement with the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator which was signed in May this year.
