Rebuilding NSW involves unlocking $20 billion in infrastructure funding by offering long-term leases on 49% of "poles and wires" network assets to businesses.

The government has released a discussion paper focussing on the issues and concerns about Rebuilding NSW and the proposed asset lease.

The Have Your Say consultation is the first step in a consultation process that will:

  • Inform communities on the conditions for leasing the assets and the Government’s strategic priorities.
  • Meet with key businesses and community groups across the state.
  • Seek feedback on investment focus points and the proposed lease of the electricity networks.

NSW Premier Mike Baird described Rebuilding NSW as “a once-in-a-generation opportunity to secure the long-term future of communities in every corner of the State”.

Members of the community are invited to offer feedback in response to the discussion paper by 19 September 2014.

A final report on the outcomes of the consultation process will be published at the end of 2014.
