The City defines advocacy as a proactive, whole of community, strategic approach aiming to influence decisions within State and Federal political spheres and government agencies, in a way that recognises and prioritises the needs of our local community.
The City of Wanneroo's Advocacy Plan was reviewed and endorsed by Council in May 2021. The revised Advocacy Plan is centred around three themes - liveability, sustainability and productivity – and nine key projects.

In 2016 the City of Wanneroo launched its strategic advocacy brand Connect Wanneroo to provide a clear signal on matters of strategic importance to the City that require a concerted effort to get political and policy support as well as funding.
The brand was instrumental in securing funding for introducing a rail line to Yanchep and the Mitchell Freeway extension northbound to Romeo Road. Connect Wanneroo continues to act as the advocacy call to action for the City of Wanneroo and the local community.
