City of Wanneroo Advocacy

The City of Wanneroo recognises the role advocacy plays in influencing political support, decision making and funding of critical infrastructure and social services. Connect Wanneroo is the City’s dedicated advocacy brand used for communication activities and campaigning for our communities’ unique needs. 

The City’s inaugural Advocacy Strategy was released in 2014 and combined with strong community support resulted in funding being secured for a range of key projects including the Mitchell Freeway extension, extension of the rail to Yanchep and a range of community facilities.

In 2024 the City has set a new Advocacy Agenda in the lead up to both the 2025 State and Federal elections. Eleven priority projects have been identified under the four themes of liveability, productivity, sustainability and wellbeing. These themes have been developed to align to the priorities of our community and both State and Federal priorities.
