Welcome to the Southern Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils (SSROC)

The Southern Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils (SSROC) is an association of 11 councils spanning Sydney’s southern, eastern, central and inner west suburbs, and covers a third of the Greater Sydney’s population, or 1.8m people.

SSROC provides a forum through which our member councils can interact, exchange ideas and work collaboratively to solve regional issues and contribute to the future sustainability of the region.

We advocate on behalf of our region to ensure that the major issues are addressed by all levels of government. Our current focus includes the environment, transport, procurement, waste, and planning.
