Consultation has concluded

Council has an existing Unsolicited Proposals Policy. This draft version has been developed to incorporate new provisions to incorporate an assessment, at the earliest possible opportunity, to determine if unsolicited proposals also meet the definition of a Public Private Partnership, which will reduce the risk that both Council and the proponent will expend unnecessary resources on proposals that cannot progress under the Policy due to requirements of the Act in relation to PPP’s.

In addition to the above proposed changes, the original Policy has been split to be a more streamlined Policy as it is now accompanied by an Unsolicited Proposal Procedural Guideline that contains all relevant procedural elements of the original Policy. Please note that the Procedural Guideline is provided for information purposes only and only the draft Policy is available for public comment.

As there has been significant structural and formatting alterations to the Policy document the attached draft Policy has highlighted in yellow the “new” content that relates to Public Private Partnerships.

The exhibition period for this draft Policy is 1 March 2021 to 29 March 2021. Copies of the document can be viewed at:

  • Wollongong City Library during library hours;
  • Council’s Customer Service Centre, Ground Floor Administration Building, 41 Burelli Street Wollongong on weekdays between 9am and 5pm;
  • On this site in the Documents section

Alternatively, submissions should be addressed to:

The General Manager, Wollongong City Council, Locked Bag 8821 WOLLONGONG DC NSW 2500 or emailed to records@wollongong.nsw.gov.au.
