NSW State Government Seminar series

NSW State Government Seminar series

NSW LEAD series

Legal Education and Development seminars designed specifically for NSW State Government staff.

With a focus on risk management, NSW State Government legal staff and senior managers must be aware of the risks and opportunities that the law presents across their portfolios.

McCullough Robertson is dedicated to helping you make a positive difference for our state.  Delivering major projects geared at further strengthening infrastructure, generating greater economic opportunity and promoting social cohesion throughout New South Wales requires the navigation of significant legal issues.  These LEAD sessions will provide you with valuable information on the potential case law and legislative issues facing your operations and are applicable to both legal staff and senior managers. 

Session 4: Affordable Housing - Opportunities for collaboration between Government and the Private Sector

With an increasing need for social and affordable housing, particularly in Sydney and surrounding areas, this seminar  will look at some of the challenges faced in achieving 
workable and feasible solutions in local communities and will consider the role of State Governments in finding sustainable outcomes. 

In this session, Social Infrastructure Partner Heather Watson, Planning and Environment Partner Patrick Holland and Mark Flack from the National Affordable Housing Consortium, will discuss:

  • developing community and business partnerships
  • planning considerations, and
  • government policy implementation.
