“The strong collaboration between Manly, Mosman, Warringah and Pittwater councils through SHOROC on important issues such as transport and health infrastructure planning and joint procurement and projects to save ratepayer funds is clearly getting strong results” said Cr Jean Hay, SHOROC President and Manly Mayor.
“This year we have achieved significant results for the future of our region, including; $125 million for hospitals, $3 million for transport feasibility planning and over $320,000 in council savings” Cr Hay said. “Even with these positive results, SHOROC is committed to achieving even stronger results in the years to come to ensure the projects we have started are completed and value to councils is even greater.”
The 2011 Report shows SHOROC has continued to gain strong momentum on a range of key initiatives and project areas during the past year, including; the regional strategy ‘Shaping Our Future’ (Part 1 and Part 2); Health of the Region Indicators, Cost Savings and Efficiency Program; more collaborative governance processes; and strengthening the council partnerships with local state and federal MP’s.

“We chose the title of this year’s report ‘Our Region, Our Results, Our Future’ to highlight that through working collaboratively across the region we have gained significant results, and we must look ahead and ensure that we meet the future challenges faced by a growing region” said, Cr Hay.
“I would like to thank and congratulate the Board members, Councillors and staff for their support and commitment during what was a very productive year” Cr Hay concluded.
