State of the Assets work expands

ALGA will produce a National State of the Assets Community Infrastructure Report for the first time in 2015.

The report will complement the successful National State the Local Roads Assets report which has been produced since 2012.  State of the roads data will also be collected again this year.

ALGA has commissioned Jeff Roorda and Associates (JRA) in partnership with the Australian Centre of Excellence for Local Government (ACELG), Institute of Public Works Australasia (IPEWA) and JAC Comrie to undertake the National State of the Assets Community Infrastructure Report which will capture the state of key asset groups such as building and facilities, parks and recreation, stormwater and water cycle management, water and wastewater, and airports.

ALGA will continue to discuss the development of the project with state and territory associations to ensure the categories used in the data collection are the most appropriate.

It is expected data collection will commence in March and April, with the report to be released at the National Local Roads and Transport Congress in Ballarat in November 2015.
