Federal Election 2019

The election is expected to be called for May 2019.

The City has been working to ensure that all political parties, current sitting members and Senators and all candidates are aware of the key issues facing the City of Wanneroo community. 

The City is working in partnership with both NGAA and GAPP to utilise all the tools they have to get the message across and to attract support.

NGAA has a campaign called Catch up with the Outer Suburbs and GAPP is focussed on a longer term ask for the Federal and State Governments to work with high growth WA Councils to establish a special purpose fund that will invest in a range of sport and recreational facilities across Perth and Peel. It is proposed that the fund be called the Federal Sport and Recreational Facilities Fund (FSRFF).
