About Us

The New England Joint Organisation consists of seven (7) Councils located on the Highlands, Slopes and Plains of Northern New South Wales.

While the area covered by our Member Councils is diverse in geography and economic drivers, the members are united in their commitment to work together for the improvement and enhancement of their communities.

The key focus areas of the organisation are:

  • Sustainable Economic Growth
  • Educated, Healthy and Connected Communities, and
  • Investment in Critical Infrastructure

Members acknowledge that outcomes in these areas cannot be delivered by members working individually or as a collective. The support of our ‘partners’, the State and Federal Governments, is essential if outcomes are to be delivered for our Communities.

This organisation’s role is to:

  • Plan and prioritise services/projects which deliver Regional Benefits;
  • Advocate to our partners on the need for these projects/services, and
  • Collaborate with our partners for service/project delivery.

The establishment of a Joint Organisation of Councils provides members with a new voice and authority to respond to initiate and response to opportunities and priorities within this Region.

Our Vision

‘The New England Joint Organisation is an inclusive and united group of councils advocating, planning and delivering positive economic and social benefits for its member communities’

Our Mission

‘The New England Joint Organisations mission is to lead, advocate, collaborate and deliver outcomes which deliver positive benefits for our collective communities’
