Pittwater Council has been short-listed for the AR Bluett award.

The AR Bluett Memorial Award each year recognises two NSW councils as being the most progressive in the state. Entry is open to all NSW councils irrespective of size or resources.

There are two categories for the Bluett Awards:
  1. City & Regional Councils – This includes city, metropolitan and major regional rural councils – 75 councils in total.
  2. Rural Councils – This includes all other rural councils and county councils – 77 rural and 14 county councils.

‘The greatest accolade a council can achieve’.

The A R Bluett Memorial Award has been awarded annually since 1945. In 2015 this prestigious award celebrates its 70th year.

There are three honorary Trustees/Judges. At the end of the financial year, the Trust invites councils to submit an entry. All entries are judged independently and objectively by each Trustee, who then meet to deliberate on their findings and select councils who may be shortlisted for inspection and presentations.

For 2015 the inspections are scheduled for late September/early October. The winning councils will be announced at the LGNSW Conference in Sydney 11-13 October 2015.
