Values, Principles & Approach

The Cootamundra Gundagai Regional Council was established in May 2016. Whilst activities continue in order to unify strategic direction and day to day operations, separate visions still exist.
These vision statements are:
Gundagai and surrounds: Gundagai is a safe and friendly thriving rural community where all residents are part of the strong community spirit.
Cootamundra and surrounds: Come to Coota – we’re a great way to live. Cootamundra is a thriving, lively Town set within a natural environment. It is a community with a heart based on its country values, its sense of belonging, its spirit and the warmth and friendliness of its people.
