The greater Newcastle region continues to experience significant growth – in population as well as public and private investment.  With excellent job prospects, great facilities, premium lifestyle offerings and being much more afforbdable than Sydney, people continue to move to and invest the area.

To support this growth, local Councils continue to invest big in infrastructure and facilities to support the community and uphold the lifestyle benefits.

For the upcoming 2024-2025 financial year, 8 local councils have allocated a combined total of $1.07 billion to infrastructure and facilities in the 2024/25 financial year.

This is spearheaded by Newcastle City Council with $415million to be invested across 60 services and covering over 280 projects.
