Smart Cities and Suburbs Program

(Question No. 538)


Ms Keay asked the Prime Minister, in writing, on 9 November 2016:

In respect of the Australian Government's Smart Cities and Suburbs Program, can the Government advise when local government authorities will be able to submit a short pitch for their project ideas in accordance with the program timeline as set out on the Smart Cities website.


Mr Turnbull: The Prime Minister has provided the following answer to the honourable member's question:

A national consultation process to inform the development of Guidelines for the Smart Cities and Suburbs Program was undertaken in September and October 2016.

Draft Guidelines will be released for further public comment in December 2016.

It is anticipated that the Guidelines will be finalised, with applicants invited to submit proposals, in early 2017.
